Location: Palatine, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:3-5 minutes
2-3 blue/red orbs flying north, then it began ascending/descending, quick right/left turns, and vertical turns.

It was around 3:30am that I looked out my balcony and as I looked up at the tree, enjoying the breeze, a red/blue orb streaked across the sky. My balcony faces north and the object flew right above my house heading north. As it past my house it made a weird noise too. I can best describe it as the sound when you steam something. That "tsssh" sound. It was a bit foggy too. So was it going fast enough to cause that noise due to the foggy mist? Being that I'm on the second floor ( balcony ) I could still see the object. It flew and then stopped in midair about 3-4 blocks north from my house. It stopped and then descended to where I could not see it anymore because of trees. I waited of course to see if it'd go back up, and what do you know, it did. It quickly flew up and started moving left, then right, and vertically up.

Clearly NOT some airplane. It looked like it would appear, and then disappear, and appear again to be on the other side of where it! was. There was one major blue/red light that really stood out, but then I saw another light right next to it. Then I could Bailey make out what looked to be one more orb/light trailing with the other two. At one moment I even thought they were a single object. Like one of those triangle UFO's, but then again my mind might just have wanted to make a picture out of the orbs. This lasted about 2-3mins of my clearly seeing it, and then 2 or so more mins where I could sort off still see it appearing and then disappearing. Oh quick thing too. When I saw it ascending and descending I tried communicating by flashing my lights on and off. Didn't seem to do anything. Either way this was pretty cool. I was able to record it descending once with my iPhone. So I have proof. Also one more thing at the end I could have sworn I saw it shoot out acouple beams out ( reddish beams ). And even if the trees weren't blocking my view, I could swear it looked like it at one point might it also mi! ght have landed. I was so close to running outside down the 3-! 4 blocks down to see if I could get a better look. I didn't though because I didn't want to miss anything in case it flew back up again, which it did.
