Three red lights seen flying over Tinley Park, IL on Halloween, at least 12 witnesses.

On October 31, 2004 at approximatly 7:50 pm I saw three red lights in the sky. The lights were in a horrizontal line moving very slowly. I witnessed the lights in Tinely Park, IL about 1 mile east of Lagrange Rd. and 1.5 miles south of 171st Street. There were three other witnesses with me. One of the witnesses filmed the event with a hand held camcorder.

The lights were a vibrant red much like a stop light. The lights were just south of my location and heading east. As they passed over me I heard no sound and could not see any discernable shape. When the lights header east they changed into a triangle pattern. Then some of the lights began to fade in and out. They nearly faded to black before becoming bright again. The lights were larger than a planet and larger than the lights from the wings of a plane. There was only the one red light emitted from each object. The spacing between the three lights remained relatively constant even when they changed their formation.

While witnessing the event I called my uncle in Oak Forest(a town further east). He to witnessed the lights, and he described them just as I did. I called the police at 8:03 pm to report what I had seen. I was told that I was the second caller and that they had no idea what the lights were. I continued to watch the lights until they were out of my view. I then called my uncle again to find that he could still see them. He watched them for another 25 minutes. During this time they went back to the horrizontal line formation. Then he said that one of the lights disappeared.

According to some of the other witnesses there had been sightings much like this a few months ago.
