I was watching trains at the Emporia depot at around 7pm sometime in early Feb 98. Sometimes when i'm waiting for a train and its dark out i look at the sky hoping to get a glimpse of a ufo. I was wathcing for 15 mins and then noticed a light that looked like a star moving northeast and i was looking southeast . I also noticed an airplane circling the sky in that area it went east and coming from the south was another airplane with another plane beside it circling. i lost track of the moving light while watch theplanes. about 3-5 mins later after the planes were out of site looking south i seen 2 more lights one foollowing the first moving norteast. this time i wasn't going to loose sigth of them. but watching them for about 15 secs and they just went out or dissapeared. the lights looked like moving stars except stars don't move like that.
