What is It?
We spent the weekend in a remote heavily forested rural area of Missouri. So remote, in fact, that there was no cell phone service, no computer access, and no television. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zip.
Around 10:00 p.m. on Saturday night, six persons in our group were out walking the area. Suddenly they noticed a round, glowing, orange-colored object hovering in the treetops. It sat there for a few minutes then drifted higher, moved across the sky, and stopped. Then the object slowly faded, until it completely disappeared. There was no sound.
The best description I could get was that the object appeared similar to the way a helium balloon would look if it were carrying a candle inside.
I've been assured that no one imbibed in strong beverages before the walk. Besides, each person describes the exact same thing.
Okay, readers. Does anyone have a clue what this could have been?
