Location: Licking, MO
Shape: Light
Duration: 2 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Three large bright lights were seen moving vertically in the sky, vanishing as quickly as they appeared.

The lights were very large to us. We could tell no form or shape. They were very obvious to us, and we suspect others saw them. They appeared to be very close, maybe 1 mile away. They were very bright, and at first appeared to be a large tower. However, the lights started moving vertically.

Three large bright lights were seen from our front yard. My boyfriend called me outside to see them because they were never present prior to this sighting. They seemed to be suspended in air, but we took the car to make certain there was no tower in the area; before we could get out of the driveway, the lights had disappeared.

The three lights were originally horizontally lined evenly. By the time I had joined my boyfriend outside, two had moved downward. Within 20 seconds, and while getting into the car, one of the three zipped upwards and disappeared. By the time we left the driveway, all three had vanished.

We drove to where we had seen the lights. At first we had suspected a tower in the area not seen prior to the sighting, but no tower was there. We also thought clouds may have been a factor, perhaps hiding a tower, but there were no clouds as we approached the area.
