The following exert is an eye witness statement. Please read into it what you will. This has been reported to mufon who I am sure are investigating:
My wife and son were traveling home from springfield illinois to marion. about 1 mike from the house, they observed an obect flying at low speed in air. it had red and green flashing lights. my wife said it came to a stop at the same time the car did. my son said he first observed it near the cracker barrell in marion and watched as it flew south then east. he said it hovered with no sound in the area above the high school. they were afraid and went inside the house. my son phoned me soon after.
