Computer shuts off during light sighting in Rockford

I was on the internet at 8:50 pm on Jan 11, when my computer mysteriously shut down then turned on again. This shut down coincided with a sighting of lights by many other citizens of Rockford, IL. Later that night on all three of the news stations in my town reports of light sightings were made. The light sightings were simlilar to the lights I saw in Feb 2000. About 8-11 yellow orange lights were seen. Over 600 people reported that they had seen the lights hovering in the sky. The light sightings were made from 8:50 to 9:00 pm in Rockford over East State street in the same location of previous sightings.
