Sighting Details

1985 or '86. Myself and some neighborhood friends were playing Hacky Sack on the street in front of my house. I was facing west when I noticed what looked like a launch of what could be the space shuttle. Everybody looked and was uninterested in the event. There was a definite ignition source coming from the tail end, looked like a rocket of some sort. Wasn't until later in life that I realized that nothing in Missouri between Independence and Kansas City would be launching something that was potentially volatile. Later in life (in my later 20's) I was telling this event to my best friend and he collaborated the story with his own encounter west of my house around the same time period of an object hovering in the sky that he claims was the size of a small town. They drove the streets under it trying to find the edges to try and identify it, to no avail, it launched upward with a glowing emission from the tail, which I believe is the same object I saw taking off from our planet. Wish I had an adult state of mind when I witnessed this event. Either way it is burned into my memory.
