Lights over St. Louis, Missouri
By: Stephanie Kelly

August 2, 2016 at approximately 2:30 am CT, a St. Louis City Surveillance camera caught something no one can explain. At the top of the left hand side of the screen, an unexplained light appears. It’s movement is rather erratic and it’s light seems to turn on and off like it is controlled by a switch. 
To give a little background into this sighting; an Illinois resident, Chase Rhoads, original turned a personal recording of this light to the local news station, KTVI-TV. After KTVI-TV’s story aired a man with the Illinois Metro East Parks and Recreation District decided to look at the surveillance videos and was rather surprised when he say the same light doing the exact same thing. The director with the Parks and Recreation District even made a statement along the line that though he didn’t believe in UFO’s but there was something weird with this light. The news station even contacted the Scott Air Force Base along with the FAA and both said that they didn’t know what the source of the light was.
This sighting has caught so much attention for many reasons. The main reason would appear to be that the Metro East Park and Recreation District published the surveillance video on August 3rd through their YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehzVYFSdVMs). To quote the video description, “We guarantee you will be perplexed if you watch all 5 minutes of this surveillance footage!”
Could this be a drone? That was my first thought, but the FAA and the local Air Force Base unable to identify, or give a possible answer to, the source of the light, it makes me thinks it wasn’t a drone. Thinking about it logically, it would be a safe assumption that the Air Force and Federal Aviation Administration know the basics of identifying drones.
Could it be weather related? According the National Weather Service through N.O.A.A. the weather at 2:49am was cloudy with a storm moving in and lightening can be seen in the background of the video. The wind was recording at an average wind speed of 4.9 South to Southwest. St. Louis is listed as having a high of 88 and a low of 73 along with the city only receiving .31 inches of rain.
What logical explanations can you think of for this light? How would you prove or disprove the UFO theory that is the main theory?
