Location: Bartlett, IL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5+ minutes
We were watching the fireworks display that started around 9:30 pm.

We live in Bartlett, Il, a far west Chicago suburb.

Initially we saw one glowing orange orb, and then 2, then 3 then a fourht one appeared as well. They were moving in very odd patterns. they would remain still for a few seconds and then go up, then back down, left and right movement as well. 3 of them dissapeared withn seconds of each other and the last one remained long after the other 3 disappeared - 3-5 seemed to move away from us, or slowly dim in intensity.

Everyone wathced them. There were about 13-15 of us. All family. I immediately went to twitter and sure enough others around the country had seen similar lights in the sky.

Was pretty damn amazing. We live very close to O'hare and are in the flight path. We see plane non stop day and night. These were definitely not planes.
