ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — Sledders enjoying Art Hill looked up to see a silent object hanging about two-hundred feet above the slope of the hill.
“What is it?” asked adults and children.

After hovering for a few minutes, it swooped over to the south side of the hill and landed, under the control of a man who identified himself as a photographer.
The pilot, who said he is “not authorized to go on the record” says his photographs may end up in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Onlookers, including a little girl on a sled, gathered around the curious object.
“You can build these from kits,” the man said, “I built this one myself.”
