UFO Sighting in Iowa City, Iowa on July 25th 1974 – 9 CRAFT W to E cigar shape belly band of alt lights slow speed until chased by USAF

- in UFO Reports
Walking East on a farm road, back towards gramma's farm we were all watching the stars. Clear warm summer evening. All looking for the" North Star". I will not speak for the other 6 kids. but we saw 9 bright stars in the north sky. At first they looked like stars. As we got near the house we could see that these "stars" were moving in a rotating formation. We went in the house and reported this activity to the adults. Outside in the yard, I along with many others, watched a cigar shaped object seemingly float over head at 200ft alt max. Not a large object, no sound, but a belt of light on its mid "belly". alt lights in a band red, blue green, yellow. As it lit up there was no sequence ,but once or twice a color would highlight. This object was moving slow enough that grampa said "I'm getting my gun". Dad said no. Just then we heard a very loud jet sound ,and saw a jet, fighter type, wiz past. Again very low. The cigar was gone and so were the 2 jets. We watched the south sky for a while and we could see the bright stars in formation until they were lost in the stars. Gramma had sent me an article clipping from the Iowa City paper a year later saying that 2 USAF jets had chased an un id fl ob. I would like to find out what this could have been. I have to say.... I saw I believe.
