National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 1/21/2002 22:30 (Entered as : 1/21/02 2230)
Reported: 1/24/2002 2:09:13 PM 14:09
Posted: 1/29/2002
Location: Columbia, MO
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 1 - 3 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Stationary lights suddenly moved rapidly; stopped, moved again at a moderate pace

From our car, we saw two bright, non-moving, non-blinking lights high in the night sky. As we both focused on the object, it suddenly jetted to the Southwest in amazing speed for a second or so. It stopped momentarily, then continued to move Southwest in a moderate speed. We quit watching after a couple of minutes. "We" are a middle-aged mom and a 14 year old son. He has seen other objects in the past (not this same one) at about this same time, but "Mom" has never seen one. She is now a believer!
