Go Back Report # 1040


Springfield, MO August 9, 2006: Two fishermen (names on file) in their early 60's were fishing at night on Lake Springfield (just south of Springfield proper). At about 2140 they observed a dim circular tight under the water surface and about 100 feet from them. As they watched it turned right then left and approached the boat. At a distance of less than 30 feet they could see a disturbance of water above and behind the lighted area. It appeared to be perhaps 8 feet across and they could see a series of light clusters making up the light mass. The light varied from yellow to orange as it dropped down into the water and could no longer be seen. The observation lasted about 3 minutes.
