Occurred : 9/30/2005 23:00 (Entered as : 09/30/2005 23:00)
Reported: 10/4/2005 7:48:22 PM 19:48
Posted: 10/11/2005
Location: Orland Park, IL
Shape: Light
there were 3 red lights seen in the east sky, in the shape of a triangle. there was originally one light and then 2 more came from the south. the original light shot up in the sky and disappeared after about 45 minutes and within minutes the other 2 seemed to vanish (didn't shoot like the original one). later at 1 am i went outside and all 3 were together again in what appeared to be the exact same area as where they had disappeared at 11:45 pm. this time they appeared to be in a crooked line that seemed to me to mimic "orion's belt". they disappeared at about 1:15am. i called people in several towns including tinley park, chicago ridge, worth, homewood and orland park il and they were visible to those people as well. not visible to people i called in mokena, new lenox or lemont.
