The #1 UFO Resource
Traveling north on hwy 63 between the paris road exit and oakland gravel road around 8:30 pm on 2/15/2017 i noticed a star like object over the prathersville missouri area. the solid star like object was moving slowly or hovering. at first i thought it might be a helicopter with its search light on due to the boone county jail near by, that might be looking for an escapee. the light remained solid unlike a helicopter's search light that will wane due to the searching on the ground. i observed the object for 5 minutes traveling west at about 10-20 mph in the sky on my way home. at times my view was obstructed by trees and buildings on the 5 minute ride home. once home i walked out side to my west facing back yard to continue to observe the object with binoculars this time. the object looked like a bright white and greenish horizontal tear drop. my wife also look through the binoculars and confirmed what i was seeing. the object was still traveling slowly west at the 10-20 mph and looked to be just north of the columbia ready mix quarry area. my house sits at around 770 ft on a hill that overlooks west across columbia mo. i watched in the binoculars for about 5 minutes then took some video of the object traveling west. i went back inside for 15 – 20 minutes to take care of some personal things then returned to the back yard to see if the object was still there. it was, but lower in the horizon. i stated recording again and the object disappeared.
