Posted: 4/18/2014
Location: Overland Park, KS
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 1 second
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Blue light accelerating at an extremely high rate of speed, then disappearing.

At approximately 21:40, traveling east on 87th Street in Overland Park from Antioch towards Metcalf Ave.

Saw a blue light move towards the east in a straight line (in line with 87th street), accelerating at an extremely high rate of speed before disappearing.

The light appeared to be arcing up, and vanished before it was anywhere close to the horizon.

I believe it was arcing up, as it decreased in size. The sky was free of clouds. When it accelerated, it did so smoothly.

The color of the light was blue, but more white towards the center, and it was circular in shape. It moved to fast to be an airplane, or at least any I have ever seen in my life.
