Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
Orbs of lights 13+ in waves flying west near Midway airport.

At around ten thirty I let my dog out in the back yard, I was letting her do her business and I was starring at the moon while there was a break in the clouds. I saw one bright orb moving west pretty fast, then I noticed it was one of three in a triangle pattern flying at same speed/ same distance apart. I kept looking up and saw more of these lights. Some came in pairs of two's and a couple more times in a triangle pattern. Maintained the same speed and kept the same distance apart, also they all moved east to west. No blinking lights on any of these, no signs of being planes. I have lived near Midway airport all my life and I know how to distinguish planes. I was just stuck watching as waves kept coming. I went up to get my cell phone but the lights were to far to show up on my cell phone camera. I told my mom to come and check them out as we were watching more pairs pass my father came home from work and joined us. He grabbed his binoculars and saw just a! solid color some were green some were orange. This went on for at least 15-20 min before the cloud cover became to much, but through the patches and breaks in the clouds I saw at least 13-15 of these balls. Im not sure what they were but me and my family were just awed by how many kept coming and the frequency. I know this was the night the big solar flare was suppose to hit us, not sure if this could have anything at all to do with this event.
