Full Description of event/sighting: Came across this site recently and I have decided to submit a sighting which I had many years ago. The night of the sighting still crosses my mind quite often.
The sighting took place in Excelsior Springs, MO. About 15 miles north of Kansas City. Not sure of the exact date, but I know it happened in 1996, it was my High School graduation year. Me and friend were driving around Kearny, MO around 2:00am and on our way back home we were driving on back to Excelsior on East on SR 92, we both spotted some lights in the sky, didn't think much of it at first sight, but as kept driving east on SR 92, the lights still haven't moved from their original spot. The lights were right about the road, I couldn't tell exactly how high it was up, but it was definitely way above the tree line.
As we got closer to the object, we could see the light reflecting off the bottom of the object. The object was a triangle shape. I only remember 3 lights on the corners. The object was directly above us and still hadn't moved. We slowed downed and rolled the windows down, and I could not hear any noise at all from the object. After a few moments sitting under the object, it began to move slowly to the west on SR92.
We decided to turn around and follow the object, we pulled a u-turn on Lynn Road and headed back east on SR 92, the object was still moving slowly. As we got closer to the object the 2nd time, it picked up speed rather quickly and started heading southwest.
After, about 20 seconds of following the object, going around 40MPH, the object suddenly stopped for a second or two and then just shot like a bat out of hell, it disappeared out of our view within a matter of couple seconds.
We were stunned, we really didn't know what to say about the occurrence, we never spoke of the sighting afterward, but I will always remember it. I remember staying up all night staring at my bedroom window, being afraid that I seen something I shouldn't have, and someone/something may pay me a visit that night.
It's been about 10 years now since that night and like I mentioned before that night still pops up in my head once in a while and I have never shared it with anyone besides my wife. It still gives me chills thinking about that night.
I just thought I would share this story since I am seeing more and more pictures on the internet of Triangle UFOs and they look just like what I saw that night.
Take care all. Thanks for taking the time to read my story.
Thank you to the witness for the interesting report.
