Location: Wichita, KS
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 2 minutes
While driving home, I saw 3 cars that were in front of me on a 2 lane road swerve as if to avoid hitting something on the railroad tracks.

When I got to where they were when they swerved, I saw nothing in the road, but I saw overhead a craft that had what looked like it had white landing lights, but it was too enormous to be a plane. All I saw was the silhouette of it against a darkening sunset sky. I saw no tail features or wings. It was just a dark and smooth cigar-shaped craft.

To add to it, there were 3 Cessna chaser-planes tracking and following the craft which was moving very slow. The Cessna planes which were behind it were flying very unusually low.

The unidentified craft was flying from the South going North as if following the railroad tracks where I noticed it. The area of town I saw this, 55th St south between Broadway and Seneca, is not a usual commercial flight zone. McConnell AFB is approximately 5-7 miles from the location I saw this.

When I got home just 5 minutes after I witnessed this, my girlfriend said "The weirdest thing happened! The whole house shook just right before you got home and the lights flickered." That's when I told her what I saw and figured it happened at the same time I witnessed the craft.

We live less than a quarter mile as the crow flies from the railroad tracks cross 55th street where the craft was witnessed.
