Occurred : 11/10/1998 (Entered as : 11/10/98)
Reported: 1/13/1999 18:13
Posted: 3/11/2003
Location: Chicago, IL
Shape: Sphere
Duration:about an hour
In a one hour period during a blackout, I witnessed 6 bright green spheres, flying across the sky from South-East to North-West.

On the night of November 10th, parts of the Chicago area had no power, do to a wind storm. The residential power on my block was out, but the street lights were still functioning. I had opened up my blinds in order to let in some of this light. With the power out, I became very bored, and called up my friend to chat (my phone was still functioning). While I talked to her, I was casually studying the sky outside my window. It was then that I noticed a green glowing ball in the sky. I informed my friend, and she causually brushed it off. I, in turn, became intrigued. Within the next hour, I saw five more of these objects. They appeared in the South-East part of the sky, and traveled soundlessly to the North-West, where they dissappeared out of my view. They flew at what appeared to be the same altitude as the planes that usually fly in the area, though, curiously, I can't recall any planes in the area at the time. I know that the objects weren't planes. I live realitively near O'Hare airport, and have literaly hundreds of planes fly over me every year. I know what they look like, and sound like, and these objects were denfinatly not them. These objects were sphereical and neon green. They looked a bit like comets without tails. At this point, I have no idea what I saw on that night. My friend (the one I was on the phone with) has spent a great deal of time trying to convince me to drop the subject, saying that it was probably something very normal. I then pointed out to her that green flying balls are *not* normal. I want to know what was in the sky that night, flying over my head. I hope that reporting it can help me solve this mystery.
