Summation by Science Review Board
A mother driving and with her 14 year old son noticed a metallic object in the sky in the late afternoon of June 8, 2014. At first they thought it was a plane but the reflection of sunlight from it appeared very bright. Initially the object appeared small but that changed as it got closer. As it approached it appeared grey with an oval shape. Her son rapidly took 13 photos within about 8 seconds. Shortly thereafter they lost track of the object as they exited the freeway.
The object was disk shaped and its distance was between 500 to 1900 feet away. This would fit with an object between 5 to 20 feet in size and traveling between 150 to 600 mph.
Case Disposition: MUFON Missouri State Section Director Dana Simpson West closed this case as an Unknown.
