Location: Colby, KS
Shape: Light
Duration: 15-20 seconds
Bright orb/orbs

I got off shift at midnight, and was driving to Walmart to pick up a few things, when I sighted a bright light, shaped like an orb, moving south to north. I was driving north to south. It was bigger than Sirius, but smaller than a full moon.

At first, I thought it was a medical flight plane, because of the appearance and flight path, but it was slightly too far to the east to be on the approach to the airport, which is north of town.

I slowed down to watch the object. As I watched, a red orb appeared to the right of the white orb, which was slightly smaller. Then two more orbs appeared to the left of the original. Both were bright, pure white like the original. The continued traveling north for a few more seconds until it broke apart and dispersed into nothing.

From my estimation, it went from about a half-mile to a quarter mile away at its closest, and well probably 200-300 feet up. And as it traveled north, it went from about 35 degrees up to approximately 45.
