Location: Tinley Park, IL
Shape: Other
Duration: 30 minutes (approx)
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
3 orange lights in the sky over Tinley Park. At first they just hovered where they were but then they started to move slowly. I didn't watch from the beginning and I wasn't able to watch in its entirety, but i saw them move around in seemingly random directions very slowly but steadily. I went back outside a little late and found only one light. The original three were in the Eastern sky around 8 PM, and the single light was in the Southern sky around half an hour later. As I watched the single light in the South, it started to move, slowly at first but picked up speed and went back to where the original three had been and then disappeared. I had about ten or eleven other people with me and some of them took pictures and maybe videos of it. There was no sound associated with the objects whatsoever. They seemed to be very far away but were still intensely bright. No craft could be seen, only individual lights. The lights glowed orange and seemed to pulsate slightly, although this may have been an optical illusion. When I looked into this event I found similar reports from other dates that mentioned red lights. Although the reports seem to identify the same lights, the ones I witnessed were distinctly orange. These orange lights seem very convenient for Halloween, and may be a hoax. However, I cannot deny what I saw with my own eyes.
