Sighting Report
Occurred : 1/13/2001 07:08 (Entered as : 01/13/00 07:08)
Reported: 1/14/2001 00:02
Posted: 3/11/2003
Location: Chicago, IL
Shape: Oval
Duration:6 minutes - I had to then
I saw 3-4 gray oval-shaped objects moving in the morning sky; one blinking orangish lights.

It was Friday morning, and I was on the Jefferson Park train platform waiting for my 7:14 train to downtown Chicago. What first drew my attention to the sky was this orange smoke in the northeast...and then moving on into a trail as what a jet speeding across the sky would leave. To the east I saw a little gray oval-shaped disk moving in the sky. It seemed to be coming from the south toward the north. As I followed it - it turned back around and started going south again. I thought of the possibility of it being a UFO but was skeptical of such a thing. I looked farther into the south and saw 2 or 3 more coming...again, gray oval-shaped disks. I looked back at the first one I had seen and followed it with my eyes. A orangish light on the side of the UFO blinked 2 times and then stopped. In the northeast, a plane was going in the southwest direction. The UFO looked as though it would collide with the plane once they got close enough to do so. When it looked as if they were about to collide, the UFO ended up just passing underneath the plane. In the south, the other 2-3 UFOs were getting nearer. One thing to point out is they were not close together at all. They were all spread out individually in the sky. The train then arrived, and I boarded. The reason I chose to report this is because I read in the newspaper about light sightings over Rockford Thursday night. My sighting occured Friday morning and may have some connection to the Rockford sightings.

NUFORC Note: We suspect the alleged incident occurred in 2001, not in 2000, as indicated. We have altered the date here. PD))
