Location: Deerfield, IL
Shape: Light
Duration: 30 Minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Object with lights over Chicago on 12/15/06, with bright center light and lighted extensions from the center (spider like).

This is the 2nd time we have seen this object in three weeks - and about at the same time and in the same sky position, directly over Chicago. It is a bright center light, with colored, almost spider like lights coming from the center light. Most of the time it was in the same position, but then turned and looked triangular, with lights on the side. We observed it on both occasions for 30 minutes, but don't know how long it was there - we stopped watching after 30 minutes. The first sighting, was accompanied by a craft which was very low flying with a red beam of light, sometimes pointed to the ground - NOT A PLANE. We actually thought at first it was a helicopter with a light searching for someone / something, but it wasn't making any noise. We couldn't believe it wasn't on the news. I've been looking to see if anyone else made a report. I probably wouldn't have made a report myself, except this is the 2nd time we've seen it, the first being about 11/24.

((NUFORC Note: Possible sighting of a landing light, which can cause the visual effects the witness describes. However, that is pure surmise, on our part. PD))
