On the 4th of July my family and I were sitting outside shooting off fireworks when we saw an orange ball like the one pictured to the left. We saw it on the horizon to our south traveling the speed of an airplane. The object did not flicker or change colors, it was a constant orange glow until it disappeared into the clouds.
The light was unlike any helicopter or airplane that we have seen at night.
Since May 25th this same orange glow has been reported around the area from many many people. You can see from this website http://thetruthbehindthescenes.wordpress.com/2011/07/04/ufo-in-the-sky-over-kansas-city-mo-july-3-2011/ the posts from other spectators that they saw the same thing. The flying object was flying low enough to the ground that you would expect to hear something from it.. nadda.. nothing was heard and we couldn’t explain this phenomenon.
This was my first experience with an unidentified flying object and though I’m still not sure what I saw I can say that this was definitely a neat thing to witness. I really wish I had thought to take a picture….
Here is a video that someone in the area was able to capture of the same object that we had witnessed:
