(KFVS) - Did you see lights in the sky on Saturday night?

We received several messages from Heartland News viewers and we may have an answer to what it was.

Several residents of Illinois and Missouri reported seeing what looked like more than 15 aircraft flying southwest.

Various people around the Heartland reported seeing them traveling in a straight line around 8 p.m. Dispatch in Cape Girardeau reported having one call about the lights but no information about what they are. The lights were seen everywhere from Cape Girardeau, Missouri to parts of southern Illinois.

People from all around the country claim to see these lights, including by viewers of our sister WIS in Columbia, South Carolina.
