Hello I wanted to report a UFO I seen while flying back from Las Vegas to Indianapolis on Oct. 10 1999. At about 4 to 5 AM. Indiana time; I think that's Central Time? I was traveling on ATA flight 142 scheduled to depart Vegas at 12:25 AM but due to boarding problems it was about 12:45 before we took off. The captain did not keep us updated on our locations so I'm not sure exactly where we were? I was sitting on the right side of the plane with a view to the south. It was a very large city we were flying over maybe Kansas City but I'm not sure. The object was orange in color and appeared to be just hovering over the city. There were orange lights on each side that blinked several times and then pauses in a repeated sequence. This object and it's blinking lights were orange and not red like you see on an airplane and that caught my attention. As best as I could tell the object appeared to stay over the city as we flew away. I don't know what it was or where we were but I thought I would report it in case this may back up some other report. Sorry I can't provide more info but I was very tired.
