Location: Springfield (??) (Schuyler County), IL

Duration:25 seconds
Observed bright red ovals.

April 9, 2000, at exactly 10:30 pm, my family and I observed a very bright scarlet red oval light 30 degrees high from observation point. We observed the object appear for five seconds stationary.

The object then dropped like a rock below the tree line in seconds. Then ten seconds later it visibly moved back up above the tree line to about 30 degrees high and remained stationary.

Seconds later a second bright red oval appeared adjacent to the first at 30 degrees high. The second red oval moved toward the first and only one red oval was visible for a few seconds before the oval red light faded out.
