Ok I can't take it anymore. I've looked lastnight & this morning & I am coming up empty handed. I saw a UFO (remember unidentified, not necessarily
alien) & I was not the only one (my co-worker saw the same thing). I was out trick or treating with my wife, our 2 friends, & out 5 kids in Cedar
Rapids IA. There were hundreds of people out lastnight. It was 7:20pm CST, so it was pretty much completely dark. Anyways, we all see this orange
light hovering above moving slightly slower than an airplane would. I thought chinese lantern as their was no sound (around that same time a plane
came in that I could clearly see & hear). It slowly went East and then faded away. Ok no biggie. 10 minutes later I see the same thing, this time
heading West. Ok so it's not a lantern (not a windy day at all and it's coming from the opposite direction). I overheard another group of people
saying something about metorites but I was able to eliminate this theory as well with it coming back. Of course I got a nice camera but of course my
wife forgets it at home (unlikely we would have taken it anyways on our walk) but I did get a pic with my crappy LG phone but it's useless. I know
their are a few Iowa folks on here so wondering if anyone has an explanation about this.
Not a plane
Not a lantern IMO.
Not a helicopter.
Not a Meteor or shooting star.
Hot Air balloon? Not sure, can they be out at night? not ruling this out.
No Air Force bases in CR & not a whole lot of sightings in this area.
Did a google search & found this article that strongly resembles what I saw.
