Reported: 2009-09-08 19:22 Pacific
Duration: 10 minutes
No of observers: 2

Location: Carbondale, IL, USA

Characteristics: Lights on object

3 bright lights over southern IL

I was on the phone outside my home this evening, when I noticed three bright white lights in a triangular shape. At first I thought I was seeing things when the lights started moving in a counter-clockwise direction. I was still on the phone with a Verizon Wireless representative when I called my wife outside to see the event.

My wife came outside and saw the lights, which at this point had moved into a perfectly straight line, and I sent her in to get our video camera. Unfortunately, she returned with the camera, but no battery. I was still on the phone with the Verizon representative, and I’m sure the entire conversation was recorded.

The lights then started moving in a perfectly straight line to the NE at a very high rate of speed (only 2 lights visible at this time) By the time my wife returned with a battery the lights had disappeared. I did not get this event on film, but I watched it in it’s entirety.

I am 37 and have never seen anything like it in my ! life. I know tonight I witnessed something special.


Possible sighting of ISS and Shuttle. PD
