|Two bright, large crafts moving slowly in a north to south direction over Bloomington, IL on Sunday, March 25th at 8:45pm.
At 8:45pm, Central Standard time, I was in my driveway and witnessed a large, glowing object moving from the north to the south directly above my position at a relatively slow rate of speed. It was the color of a flame - the illumination remained consistent - except that, looking through binoculars, it appeared as if the "light" was moving from left to right - as if scanning the sky, in a consistent pattern. The craft made no sound, and appeared to be at an altitude of approx. 2,000 - 3,000 feet. When the craft was directly overhead, the light was no longer visible, however it was apparent that it was circular in shape. As the craft moved from directly overhead southward, a dim light was visible, but only a fraction of what was emanating from the "front." After the initial craft disappeared in the south sky, a second craft appeared moving in the same north - south track, at the same rate of speed. Both crafts were identical in appearance. Neither craft had any blinking lights, nor were they moving at a speed that would be required by an airplane to remain aloft.
I took a few pictures of the crafts, only one of which turned out decent. I also filmed some HD video, however, because it was dark, it did not turn out well.
The first craft was witnessed by my wife and myself. The second craft was also witnessed by our nextdoor neighbors (who we invited to watch with us).
