Reported: 3/2/2011 7:33:32 PM 19:33
Posted: 3/10/2011
Location: Lisle, IL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:15-20 minutes
Stationary fireball lights on horizon facing Ohare.

We were commenting on the strange cloud shape in the sky as though three jets went through close together and noticed them. Looking northeast from our apartment balcony we saw three individual fireball pulsating objects. They maintained vertical position close to the horizon for over 10 minutes and then one went out slowly. The other two remained for about another 5-8 minutes before going out as well. They were almost amber in color but flickered frequently and were extremely bright. There were normal air traffic patterns with helicopters but this was extremely odd. We have planes coming overhead all the time and this looked nothing like them whatsoever.
