Location: Olathe, KS
Shape: Circle
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Flickering sphere which descended and then reappeared.

We saw one flickering light near 135th and Pfulmm which traveled east and then west in an erratic pattern. Approximately 300 feet if the ground. It then stopped flickering and appeared to gently descend near just north of 15th near Greenwood. The outline was faintly visible. While attempting to maintain visual during its descent, the object was no longer visible.

While continuing to search for the object in the vicinity where it descended we observed the same object back in the sky in approximately the same location. Its flight pattern appeared the same. It then dissappeared and was not located following a brief search.

With the airport close it was certainly not a plane. It appeared to possibly be a Chinese lantern. Although that theory does not seem logical because of it reappearing for a brief period.
