2009 Nov I seen "I worked nights at a trucking company" and wondered the parking lot between dispatch calls, smoking and starwatching.
I Noticed my little cluster of Pleides, not a cloud in the sky, new moon very dark. cool and crisp air.
No Noise, just I-44 just east of Springfield Missouri, I noticed an absence of stars, not a large area, but bigger than a commercial jet. Passed it
off, took a few steps and it hit me, WTH was blocking the stars, no lights, no noise directly above me.
I took a double take, took a few secs to relocate it, originally it was moving due north, very slowly "almost motionless" then in the next 30 seconds
or so it took a right turn due east, directly following I-44 towards Strafford Missouri,
Fort Wood is 90 miles in that direction, not sure if that is relevant.
The entire episode lasted maybe 5 minutes, I figured balloon, that escaped new car sales dealership.
It was shaped oddly 4 sided, but more of a triangle with an odd angle sliced off one of the corners. Trapezoidal shaped.
That is all I can say, Nothing crazy, no fast take off, no lights, just wrote it off as on of them things I will never know for sure what it was.
No Alien doom porn, just by definition only, it was a UFO to me.
I was east of Highway 65 but could see and hear it "HWY 65" 1/2 mile at most, and about 1/4 south of I-44 "French's and Reckitt and Benkiser" are
there, That is the parking lot I was in while watching this. No parking lot lights, very little light pollution, I had a good look, just a matt black
"suede" if I had to chose a color/texture
That is it folks, pretty boring, but I will never forget it. I just realized it was directly over Springfield Underground when I first seen it.
There is also an army reserve, parking area only for the guys that do the logistics, truck drivers and transportation troop. It is never active and
was not that night. Just a gated off 5-8 acre gravel lot with 10, maybe 25 ton truck or three...I think trailers, and deployable water crossings, is
their job, and a few personel carriers, no armory or active G.I.'s just 1 weekend a month they do hot laps and service the trucks for their reserve
It was 2-3am Sat morning
