For a month or so now, we have witnessed the "Kansas City Lights" as these Objects are called. They have been seen by all who work here, at night. 1.) I was outside, smoking and enjoying a peaceful night. (Last night) was looking to see the alignment of Regulus, Jupiter, and Venus. 3.). I casually noted a jet heading west, at high altitude, contrail streaming behind it. Abruptly I saw a red-orange sphere/globe slightly above the contrails and pacing the aircraft perfectly, about 3 seconds behind it. 4.) A person who has studied all aircraft for about 30 years and, a former surveillance/recon specialist of the US Army, I knew immediately that it wasn't anything man made, nor reflecting of the sun which was not positioned to do so. Given what I have recently observed in the western sky. My first inclination was UFO. 5.). As usual now,y feelings were more of a internal monologue of "no one but me saw that". These sightings make me feel alone typically as I'm the only one looking. I llive with my wife who is the live-in supervisor of a group home. My feelings verge on depressive, because I can not get video or pictoral evidence of what I see due to distance. Local media seems to be ignoring me even as I call in on Objects that I'm observing, unmoved for almost a hour. 6.) At least 7-8.
