30 Reddish / Orange lights over Johnsburg, Illinois

On 6/08/2014, in Johnsburg, Illinois, my wife, kids and I observed a steady stream of reddish/orange lights emerge from East, and progress at a rapid rate towards the South West.

The lights were mostly following a straight line formation, with a few further South the all of them.

We did not hear any sounds, and the lights were much brighter than the foreground. They seemed to emerge from the darkness, get brighter, and then vanish as fast as they appeared.

The lights were bright red, not aviation lights.

From my vantage point it appeared that these lights were increasing in altitude as the lights became dimmer and dimmer until vanishing.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and he seemed to us to be quite eloquent and sober-minded, in his description of the sighting event. We suspect that his report is an accurate portrayal of what was seen. PD))
