Redish/orange sphere seen over Des Plaines Il.

On July 13th, 2014, I took my dog outside for him to do his business, while waiting for him I was looking at the big dipper and saw a red object appeared from the west sky. It was moving at a steady pace heading in an easterly direction. It got larger as it passed much like the space station would (witch Iíve seen many timeís) and vanished as the space station would.

The object was an orange red color with yellow around the outside of it. After the object passed a second object the same as the first appeared from the west a little further north of the first and traveling in the same manor. Both objectís made no noise of any kind, I could hear the sound of an airplane traveling northbound due west leaving OíHare airport, but that was the only sound I could hear. Both object

ís took about 10 to 12 secondís each from the time I seen them to pass over head.

Iíve lived in my house since 1987 just north of OíHare airport and know the difference between an airplane, Helicopters, and the space station going over our home.

I have never seen anything like this in my 58 years on this earth.
