50 Miles South Of Des Moines, Iowa Something Follows Jet Aircraft

Date: May 24, 2006
Time: Approx: 8:39 p.m.

Hi Brian, In the evening of Wednesday May 24, 2006 while sitting and reading I saw a plane traveling from the east heading in a south westerly direction. It was at a high altitude of over 30,000 feet and appeared to be an ordinary 4 engine large jet plane.

The engines produced the white smoke that is seen coming from a high altitude jet, and it had 4 distinctive plumes, 2 from each wing. The wings were visible, though very small at this distance.

It appeared to be about 50 miles south of Des Moines, Iowa.

I went back to my reading after it was out of my sight, I had first noticed it looking out my back window, that face's East. In a minute or so something else caught my eye that was in the same location as when I first noticed the jet that had just passed.

Again it was about 30,000 or higher and it was about the same size as the jet that just passed. This object had no wings that I could see and the stranger thing was that it had no engine exhaust plume of any type.

I went outside and looked to the South West. I could see the original jet with it's exhaust plume and then again I looked up and looked at this fuselage looking object with no plume at all. It seemed to be "Tailing" this jet that was about 10 miles or more ahead of it. It appeared as if it was following the jet because it was tracking at what seemed to be the same altitude and also heading in a South Westerly direction, and was going the same speed as the jet in front of it. It looked as if it was following right in the track of the jet.

After the jet and this object left my range of vision I came into the house and noted that it was 8:39 pm.

Best Wishes.

Thank you to the witness for the report.
