Location: Libertyville, IL
Shape: Circle
Duration:20 minutes and still goin
color changing, bouncing object in the sky.

At first i thought it was a plane, but it wasn't moving, and the light/lights coming off of it were those of any plane I have seen before. it was not like how lights on a plane flash. if it were, it would mean the entire plan was changing color. the object was randomly cycling through red, white, and blue colors. it looked as if light was coming off of the object in random directions at random times. the object was bobbing around in the sky as if it were a marble dangling from a string and someone was bouncing it up and down. the movements were sometimes very abrupt and other times it would move slowly down and slowly up. the entire coure of the movements seemed to stay within a well defined box-like area in the sky. from libertyville, IL, the object was located in the north-northeast portion of the sky.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the object may have been a star. Just a guess. PD))
