UFO Formation

On Friday, July 9, 2010 at approximately 11:30pm.

At Willow Campgrounds, located in Lovewell State Park, on the north shore of Lovewell Lake in Jewell County, North Central Kansas. My 20-year-old son and his girlfriend we taking a walk and enjoying the crystal clear night skies.

Suddenly my son looked to the southeast and to his surprise, there low in the sky, he observed a formation of seven bright orange lights. The group moved like independent ships, not attached to any superstructure.

The formation was moving to northwest, when suddenly two of the ships in the middle of the group started to orbit each other. The formation continued on a northwestern course and then they all faded away and were no longer visible.

The entire sighting lasted around :45 seconds. The lights were the size of a pea held at arms length. The light emitted was steady and a hunter orange color. The formation moved at a slow steady speed. No noise of any kind was heard and there was no flame or contrail observed. The distance and size of the crafts could not be determined.

GPS Coordinates: N. 39..90.47 - W. 98.05.27

A side note: Last winter there were 2 cases of cattle mutilation near Burr Oak, KS, which is about 15 miles southwest of the Lake. The usual body parts were missing, however there was a fresh cover of snow and there was no blood or footprints. Details were in the Superior Express Newspaper. (Superior, NE.)
