Two pulsing bright red lights in eastern sky seen around 11:30 p.m. from my backyard in Orland Park, IL

Sometime around 11:30 p.m. I took my two dogs out in our backyard and I noticed alot of red lights in the eastern sky (very slightly NE). I watched them and thought there were an awful lot of planes out that night. Then I noticed that two of the red lights seem to stay in the same spot and were not moving. I watched them for a while and noticed that they seem to be pulsing. It appeared to have several little red lights pulsing around a larger red light in the middle that did not pulse but stayed constant. I got my husband out of bed and told him he should get up and look at these strange red lights in the sky. He looked at them with binoculars but to me I could see them better with a naked eye. We watched for a while and noticed they were getting dimmer they seemed to be going further out in the sky they did not go north or south just shot straight back into the night sky. They got dimmer and dimmer. I looked out later that night and they were gone sometime after midnight.

(NUFORC Note: All reports of the two sightings (23:15 hrs., 30SE05, and 01:10 hrs., 01OC05) from Illinois will be passed along to Dr. Mark Rodighier, Director of the CENTER FOR UFO STUDIES, Chicago, as well as to Mr. Dave Marler, State Director of the MUTUAL UFO NETWORK for the State of Illinois, who will pass them along to his Field Investigators in the Chicago area.
