Mass Sighting Reports in Kansas City

The witnesses described a similar object that was extremely large with multiple lights in a triangular shape on the bottom side. The lights were facing down. Some people reported that the object tilted 90 degrees on its side, then took off at a high rate of speed.

One person said that the object hovered just 30 feet over the Raytown water tower near 63rd Street and Raytown Road. The object then rose up 15 feet, flipped on its side 90 degrees, and took off at "light speed" and out of sight. There was no noise and there was a black contrail behind it. He said the size was massive. The witness said that some people came out of Wendy's restaurant to view the object, and that others were stopped on the road looking at the object.
On October 3, five witnesses reported a massive UFO over I-70 and other areas in Kansas City at approximately 3:30 pm. There was a traffic jam on the highway due to an accident and people were watching and filming the object from their cars.

These recent reports follow 62 UFO sightings in the Kansas City area in the past 90 days, making 84 reports total during that time period. Most of the reports remain unexplained.

The MUFON Star Team has been activated, with Assistant State Director Margie Kay of Kansas City heading up the investigations with the assistance of Stan Seba in Lawrence, Kansas and State Director Debbie Ziegelmeyer in St. Louis. Other investigators from nearby states are on standby in case their assistance is needed. MUFON is checking radar reports, airport logs, and putting together a time-line and sighting locations, which will be released to the media shortly.

Margie Kay is looking for witnesses who have photos or video of the objects.
