Police, FBI, & Military Cordon Off Areas of Downtown Chicago Durring Mass Sighting As Military Aircrafts Chase UFOs Overhead.

This was a mass sighting in downtown Chicago of all places. It went viral on Facebook almost immediately. Some crafts were seen flying close to the ground in downtown Chicago. Pictures were taken and possibly video as well. What makes this especially unique is that parts of Chicago were cordoned off with roadblocks/traffic diversions. The police, FBI, and military were there coordinating efforts as these objects were chased by planes and helicopters around the sky. The areas initially involved also became permeated with men in black suits who were seen talking to the feds and were walking around everywhere. Then the police decided to tell everyone that it was just lightening which nobody could possibly believe. Thousands of people on Facebook took to massive threads. Some of the pictures posted disappeared from FB but some were saved by others (Some of which are friends of mine) before hand. I don't know if this was on local news but it should have been. The local police/feds/military response was unprecedented. This is not a hoax. I believe the objects were orb-like. The pics I saw were of three lights in a triangular shape, though I could not determine if they were a result of one craft or three. I would have to go back and sift through a massive amount of posts to get more details on the craft(s) and will do so if contacted. Please only release my first name.
