Posted: 3/11/2003
Location: Jacksonville, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:1 1/2 hours
First one appeared in the eastern sky and moved slowly south, about 10 minutes later another light appeared in the same spot the first one came from. The rest of the seven appeared in the same manner. The lights were orange/amber and were not flashing.

At approx. 9:30 pm on 10/18/98, while stopped on a country road, four people witnessed the appearance of an orangish light seemingly out of nowhere traveling slowly south. In approx. 10 minute intervals more would appear in the same spot and follow the same pattern traveling slowly south. We were unable to make out an actual shape and eventually each would travel out of site.
