Reported: 10/2/2005 9:06:02 AM 09:06

Location: Midlothian, IL
Shape: Light
Duration: 20-25minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Red lights, southland Chicago

I was also a witness to the South Chicago "red lights in sky" event. What I am not reading or hearing is HOW they disappeared. We (me and two other friends) watched them for almost a good half hour, they really never seemed to move, but yet, they WERE moving. We witnessed them coming out of the west and moving due east towards lake michigan. Around 1:30am cst, they flickered violently and just VANISHED one after the other only a few seconds apart from one another.

However, i must mention, about 20 minutes prior to witnessing this event I witnessed a very low shooting star directly overhead (my two friends didn't see this). I don't know if it was related or if it was just a coincidence. I was in the Air Force and i know the closest base is in Peoria , Il, i know this wasn't a military experiment!

(NUFORC Note: All reports of the two sightings (23:15 hrs., 30SE05, and 01:10 hrs., 01OC05) from Illinois will be passed along to Dr. Mark Rodighier, Director of the CENTER FOR UFO STUDIES, Chicago, as well as to Mr. Dave Marler, State Director of the MUTUAL UFO NETWORK for the State of Illinois, who will pass them along to his Field Investigators in the Chicago area.

We would be most grateful if witnesses to this event would please submit a detailed report of their sighting, using the ONLINE REPORT FORM on our website, and we will pass those reports along to those two investigators above. PD))
