Location: Chanute, KS
Shape: Light
Duration: approx. 2 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bright solid light moving rapidly east

It was around 6.50 in the morning and I am in my car taking a break from my graveyard shift, talking on the phone with my fiancÚ when I all of the sudden I see something resembling a star right above my head moving rapidly east. The manner of how this light was behaving and how it looked, said to me that this could not be an airplane. I told my fiancÚ which was home at our house 2 minutes away to go outside and take a look, but the object was moving away too quickly for her to locate it on the sky, and also with our house being surrounded by huge trees making it difficult to spot.

It was dawn but still the sky was deep blue and stars could still be seen clearly for about 10 to 15 minutes after the object had moved out of my sight to the east. It did not change shape or color, but simply moved very fast over the sky in a straight line till it was gone. The whole thing took about 2 minutes from me noticing it, till it was gone.

Don't know what this was, but no plane I know of look or act in the way this "star" did.
