Location: Fenton, MO
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 20 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Black triangle with single light over Fenton, MO (Murphy area).

I was about to shut the blinds in one of the upstairs bedrooms when I noticed a rather large white light in the sky. Knowing that stars twinkle, and the light of a planet stays steady, I assumed this must be a planet.

I grabbed my binoculars. As I was fixing on the object I noticed that this light was kind of bobbing back and forth, and up and down in small increments. I'm thinking that atmospheric conditions are the cause of this apparent movement of this "hanging light."

While looking through the binoculars it was impossible to keep the light steady in view, but I noticed a black triangular shape which was darker than the night sky that enveloped the orangish-white light. This thing just continued to slowly bob and zig back and forth and up and down in very small increments while at the same time slowly moving to my right until it moved out of view disappearing behind the rooftop of my neighbor's house.

The period of time from first notice until it was out of my sight was approximately 20 minutes.

The next night (tonight-10/29/05) I went to shut the blinds in the guest bedroom as usual and this light was exactly where it was the night before--appearing and behaving exactly as before on the previous night.

I will be looking tomorrow for another appearance.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect that the light may be a celestial body, given that it has been seen on sequential nights. We do not know what the black triangle was. PD))
