Description: Here is a brief description of my experience. Well I walked out on my back porch and I saw it off in the distance. It was a really bright light and could have been a plane or anything. But with a blink-of-an-eye like it was like right there super close probably about not even a quarter mile from my house. It did not move like a plane. It like bounced around very weird awkward movements honestly. And when it would finally like stop moving you can see it like it was kind of lit up around it, but not like bright light. It was like it was scanning the sky and then it would bounce around again. This lasted for at least 15 minutes in the same spot like it didn’t move out of this one area. It happened on June 5th 2018 at approximately 10:05 to 10:20 PM. I live in Ellsinore, Missouri.
I’m not good with approximate sizes, but it was very large. I can tell you that it was just a very bright light. I couldn’t really tell if it had much color to it. I’m sure it was just a very clear light and the weather conditions were perfect. It was probably around 70 degrees outside. Skies were very clear. That is why I went outside was to look at the stars as it was so clear. I know for sure it wasn’t a plane and I’m pretty sure that it was not a satellite. I have been told that it could be a drone, but I don’t know what those look like and I looked up your website and I saw where there have been several sightings all around me. I really honestly just want to know what it is. I have a almost 7 Minute video and almost a 2-minute video that I will be sending with this.
Additional Comments From Witness: It never really vanished. It just moved out of frame, but came right right back. How it really happened was I was waiting on my last load of laundry to get done and I just stepped out the back porch because it was a nice clear night and I love looking at the stars. When I was standing outside I could see the bright light, but it was like far away and it just looked like a regular airplane light or something along those lines. And I just kind of looked at it and it very quickly came to where I videotaped it at and it really didn’t leave that spot I stood out there for probably a good 5 minutes trying to figure out what it really was before I ever even thought to grab my phone to record it. And I recorded a video, but it was out there for another good 10 minutes before I came in because my little girl woke up. When I went back out maybe about 30 minutes later it was not there at all. But for a good solid 30 minutes it was right there like it played in that little area. It never really left that spot in the sky for real like it just zip back and forth and would go like really far away and then come back. What I mean by it went far away and was like it went really high in the sky and then it just like right back to where I can see it very well again.
Note: The light certainly was not a Chinese Lantern as it was visible for 30 minutes. It possibly could have been a drone, but I would think that the witness should have heard some sound.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
