Location: Marion, IL
Shape: Light
Duration: 20 minutes
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
At approximately 10:30 pm, I stepped out into the backyard and observed a white light in the shape of an orb streak across the sky. I then saw that there were 3 more darting in and out of view through cloud cover. I went in the house and got my roommate and she too witnessed this event. The lights were extremely fast and would merge into a single body from time to time. They were visible while in the cloud but would almost disappear when they would move between the clouds. Yet, you could still see a faint trace as they moved in and out of the clouds. They disappeared completely when the clouds became few and far between.
