strange vertical lights over chicago

Last night on my drive home(approx. 15 miles) I noticed that the sky was much brighter than normal. I noticed vertical lights in the sky that seemed to be projecting light from the sky to the ground. On my journey home I must have seen about 40 - 50 of these lights. some of those lights where alone and others where paired up in 3 - 4 lights equidistance of one another. whats stranger is that these lights couldnt have been commercial advertizment because they could be scene for a distance of 10 - 20 miles away and where in areas like forest preseves and even as far as into lake michigan. I called a few friends in different areas and they all confirmed the lights, as well as some callers did to a popular music station that i was listening to at the time. at about 10:00 central time after arriving at my house i took out my digital camera and took a few pictures at the same time i saw military aircraft flying around. Today I didnt hear anything on the news about the matter.


We suspect the witness, who elects to remain semi-anonymous, implies a nighttime sighting. We further suspect that he was observing celestial bodies. PD
