Message: I live in Des Moines, Iowa and I was out pretty late with some friends who were all going out of state the next day. It got pretty late and I decided it was about time to get home. I estimate I saw the unidentified craft/crafts at around 4:30 because it was about 4 when I left my friends. When I arrived at home I noticed the sky was extremely clear. All the stars were out,I was taking in all the scenery when I saw what had to have been 8 or 10 bright white lights in a V pattern fly right over my head. No sound and it looked huge.
Couldn’t have been more than 1,000 to 2,000 feet in the sky and it moved at a very slow speed. I watched it for probably 3 to 4 minutes untill it made a sharp curve and dissapeared into the horizon. Now I’m sure it wasn’t just one craft or whatever you want to call it because I looked in between the V pattern and I could still see the stars in the sky. I have no idea if this was some sort of a manmade drone plane or a genuine alien craft. All I know is that it was unidentified to me and I still find it strange that it happened at 4:30 on a weeknight.
Maybe it wasn’t meant to be seen, maybe I was the only one meant to see it. It’s possible that we are all meant to have our own personal experience or contact. Maybe it was nothing out of the ordinary at all. Either way it was an unforgettable experience for me.
