Reported: 12/7/2001 10:33:57 AM 10:33
Posted: 3/11/2003
Location: Woodridge, IL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:few minutes
Three large red lights, two rotating about each other, no sound, within 200 feet of tree line, moving slowly

Saw three distinct large red lights in triangle formation with leading edge being the single light moving southwestward and the rear lights following and rotating about each other at a slow speed. Either it was one large craft or three single. Flew at low altitude almost appearing within 200 feet above tree line with no noise. The siting is within 20 miles of Chicago's Ohare airport and planes were also visible at this time and were significantly different. THere was no mistaking the siting as being a plane and given its low altitude with no sound, I would tend to discount a helicopter. Unfortunately, we were driving in the opposite direction so I could not view this for more than a minute.
