Location: Des Moines, IA
Shape: Unknown
Duration: 10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
floating white light with dim blinking light still in the sky with no sound.

two friends and i were taking a late night drive when one of my friends looked out of the window to the north east and saw a large white light and a dim blinking light we tried to get pictures but our phones weren't strong enough to capture it so we kept driving. we stopped on the side of the road and looked at it very close and listened, it was about 300 or so feet above a area of forest. there was no sounds so we turned around and started heading towards it, it slowly hovered south with the lights in the same place and made no sound as we started getting closer it very quickly went west. It was out of sight in less then a minute.
