Posted: 7/22/2013
Location: Deerfield, IL
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Red/Orange fireballs or lights above northern Chicago suburbs

Sitting outside on balcony, looking at the sky above the town area I began to notice five red or orange lights moving around each other from my right to the center of where I could see (as someone with flying experience I recognized this immediately as something out of the ordinary),

they spun around each other horizontally and relatively close to each other but moving a little bit father away, coming in and out of visibility, and about the size of what the stars seemed to me.

At this point, we began to notice almost all the stars in our sight began moving as if they were vibrating. Basically simultaneously to the beginning of the stars moving, the red objects vanished.

25 minutes later (10:20 PM) we went back outside to find that all of the stars moved up into the sky almost directly above us, there was a jet flying through the area that the lights were in when they disappeared.
