Two unidentified extremely bright lights, one large - one smaller, clearly visible on a sunny clear day, moving at incredible speed..

This is a second sighting I had in Southwest Iowa - the first being in the fall of 66 which I have also submitted at this time. This second sighting was in the later afternoon on a sunny, clear day in late May or early June of 1967. I don't know the exact date. We lived in the country on a small acreage. I was bringing in the groceries when out of the corner of my eye I noticed a very bright, stationary light in the Northern sky about 30 - 45 degrees off the horizon. I turned to look at it - it was extremely bright, high in the sky and about the size to my eye of about 3 or 4 bright stars combined. As I watched it, another smaller, but just as bright light, came flying at an incredible speed out of the east, intersected with the larger light and they both moved flew up and away, again at incredible speed, and were quickly out of sight. I called to my husband when I noticed the first light, but by the time he got outside they were gone.


Date is approximate. PD
