Location: Chicago (Wood Dale), IL
Shape: Fireball
Duration: Unknown
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Around 11 PM, my family called to tell me there were strange red/orange lights in the sky. I went out, and after a few minutes of waiting, I observed one myself. It was moving rapidly to the West, and died out slowly. We were not able to tell where it went though, as we would of tried to find it. They were assumed to be "Chinese lights", but they can't be. They were moving too fast and specific to be them. There was also no wind. Also the fact they were always the same height from the ground and all moved at the speed. They would come from the same place, and move down the same street.
