Location: Mendota, IL I-39 North, IL
Shape: Oval
Duration: 3 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
The metal UFO appeared below the clouds; it had lights around it; it made no sound & vanished in less than 1 second. It was amazing.

As my parents traveled north on I-39, the UFO suddenly appeared. It was completely silent and hovered right below the cumulus clouds. It was metal and had one string of horizontal lights (blue/green/yellow) that lit up around the middle oval UFO.

It hovered above us at an angle so we had clear view of this breathtaking object. My two brothers and I were amazed and I screamed at my parents that we could see a UFO. It hovered for about 2-3 minutes. The UFO was not threatening and suddenly disappeared in front of our eyes in less than 1 second. It left no trail of smoke and was completely silent. Iíll never forget what I witnessed.
