Location of Sighting: Just West of Emporia, Kansas
Date of Sighting: December 9, 2017
Time of Sighting: 9 PM CST
Description: I witnessed the lights at 9 PM. My sighting lasted about 5 minutes. The location was just a few miles west of Emporia, Kansas on Interstate 35. There were a little more than 10 blinking red and white lights in a line, way up in the sky, moving quite slowly to the northwest, but they were definitely moving. I was unable to get a video of it because my phone’s camera quality isn’t high enough. I can confirm that it was not any sort of cell phone towers, as like I said, the lights were moving and very high in the sky. They never broke formation and were evenly spaced. This suggests that they may have been of a single object. At about arm’s length, it appeared to be a little over a foot long. The date was 12-9-17.
