One Missouri parent has a lot of explaining to do to the kids and some nieces who had gathered at a window to watch an incoming thunderstorm in the early morning hours of June 19, 2011.

With the late-night storm as a back drop, the parent reports they spotted a "huge disc-shaped object with bright spinning lights" hovering just down the street above neighbor's homes, according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (>MUFON) witness reporting database.
As they watched, the object "shot out like three or four bright beams of light."
"Then the blue lights went out then reappeared (with the) bright blue spinning lights again," the reporting witness stated. "Then all of a sudden it zipped up, and shot out another bright beam of light when it disappeared."
Although the group panicked over what they saw, they gathered again at the window for another look. The witness said the object appeared again "briefly above the complex in front of us, then disappeared again."
The witness reports that they are terrified and confused over the event and want to know what the object was.
No town name was mentioned in the public portion of the MUFON report, which was filed on June 19, 2011. No images or videos were included with the report. The above quotes were edited for clarity.
