Missouri Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) state section director Margie Kay is reporting an increase in UFO sightings reports.
The following was released by Kay on June 12.
A rash of UFO sightings in the greater Kansas City area have prompted investigations by Mutual UFO Network field investigators. Sightings in St. Joseph, Kansas City, Independence, Sedalia, and Warrensburg from December 31 to the present have increased in number.
Some of the more spectacular sightings are as follows:
Two Warrensburg women witnessed a large circular unidentified object on the evening of December 31, 2008 and the morning of January 1, 2008. Christina Cooper, a professional photographer, and her friend reported the sighting to MUFON. A third witness, who wishes to remain anonymous, and who was in a different location, spoke to the investigator by phone. The sighting occurred on the evening of December 31 at 6:30 PM and again at 12:30 and 1:30 AM on January 1. The object was circular in shape, reported to be close to the road, approximately 60 feet off the ground and had several bright white lights on it. It landed at one point on 50 Hwy.
Since the unidentified object may have been in the area for several hours, it is possible that other people saw it. The locations are Hwy 13 North of Warrensburg and south of I-70, and Hwy 50 between Kansas City and Warrensburg.
In March a UFO was spotted by several college professors in St. Joseph, Missouri, who viewed the object through a telescope. Two of the witnesses made drawings of the object, which were large orange fireballs in a tear-drop shape. The UFO moved away and disappeared.
In late May a large oval object was spotted traveling from South to North from the UMKC campus in Kansas City, and in June a large cigar-shaped silver UFO was witnessed in Sedalia by 20 people standing in an Applebee’s parking lot.
Many other sightings have been sent to the KC MUFON office, some of which were not reported to the official MUFON database.
