Three Red Lights Over Tinley Park

At around 1 am we witnessed three intense red lights move slowly across the night sky coming from the southwest and moving northeast. The lights seemed to all move individually but stayed in a similar shape. We noticed they had the same shape and placement as orions belt. Very similar. They stopped at about 40 degrees above the horizon east-northeast. They seemed to dim and start blinking, then one at a time disapeared. It took about 5 minutes to move across the sky and once they stopped they were visible to me for about 15 minutes.

(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))
