Location: Rockford, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
Lights seen in Rockford, Il when coming home at night. Color sort of off pink like street lights.

My granddaughter and I were coming home thru Rockford on East State Street. We saw the lights in the sky over somewhere around Media Play. I did not think the lights were very high. We both thought that whatever it was it was attached to the ground somewhere by a string. I thing someone had ballons in two sets, tyed together so they would look like two groups. I don't know what the light source was. Maybe penlighs or those lights that can be used when camping where you break the glass tube inside the plastic tube. I do not think it was anything from another world. The lights moved around within each group, like the wind was making them move. It reminded me of the ballons that businesses send up during the day to advertize a sale. I did not count the number of lights and time is approximate.Nothing more that I can think to say on this subject.
