Location: Chicago, IL
Shape: Circle
Duration: 4 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Observed and photographed five silent stationary discs. Two with red lights underneath and three with white lights.

While driving we observed five disc shaped objects standing stationary in the sky. Initially we thought we were looking at helicopters hovering.

We drove directly under them, shut the car off and got out. There was no sound, and when looking up saw what appeared to look like large red LED lights in a circular pattern with one large one in the middle on the bottom of two of the craft the other craft were white.

We watched them for about two minutes outside the car and took two photos and one short movie with an iPhone.

The five craft then proceeded east bound toward Lake Michigan.

One observer is a police officer and lawyer. The other observer is a disabled steelworker.
