Location: Republic, MO
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
This was not a commercial plane, odd lights and hovering, moved and stopped quickly, large red circular underbelly.


I am going to provide a map for a better idea on longitude and latitude below.
We were on Farm Road 1000 coming around the first corner you will see veering off to the left on the map driving south towards the intersection of Farm Road 2280 in Washburn, Mo. I used the fire station as a reference point because it is probably less than a 1/2 mile from where we first seen it at 9:33 pm, Sunday May 27th. Farm Road 1000, or as locals know it, Fletcher ridge is a dirt road, so we were going pretty slow. By our location we turned right, the map view on the link, you will see in opposite view, heading toward Farm road 2280.

We noticed odd lights as we were at the corner to our left, we were fascinated because it didn't look like a plane, then we saw it was hovering and the lights were not normal. Then it shot to the right of us, in the blink of an eye, a little beyond the fire station and starting hovering again. That's when we got a better view of the lights.

There were white and green lights, way larger than a commercial jet and the belly of it had a LARGE red circular light with lights within it. By this time we were at the intersection fascination went to fear. So if there we other colors, I don't know, but I know it had white, green and a very large red underbelly and much larger than a commercial plane. We took a left and got the heck out of there. I don't think we have ever hit the main road so fast.

We live in Republic, MO, and close to SFG and see planes every night out on our patio. We have never seen anything like this before. We grew up in the area and spent many nights backroading in our teen years and NEVER seen anything like this. There we two of us who witnessed this.
