Location of Sighting: On Interstate 135 about 60 Miles North of Wichita, Kansas
Date of Sighting: November 16, 2017
Time of Sighting: About 1:15 PM CST
Description: Two men were driving southbound on Interstate 135 about 60 miles north of Wichita, Kansas. One of the witnesses saw an object moving south on a hazy, sunny day. The object would flash bright then disappear and reappear. This happened about 4 times until the object vanished over the horizon. Only one of the witnesses saw the object. The witness that didn’t see it was wearing dark sun glasses. The object was orb-like, white and was round. The witness first thought that the object was an airplane, but quickly realized that it wasn’t because there were no flashing lights. He knew that it wasn’t a meteor because there was no tail.
Note: The description sounds like that the object could have been an Iridium Flare satellite. These satellites are communication satellites and can be quite bright and some are visible during the daytime. They flash when the antennas refract sunlight. However, a check of the “Heavens Above” satellite website did not show any bright Iridium Flare activity in the area at the time of the sighting. Perhaps it could have an Iridium not tracked in this satellite database?Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
