The event was exactly the same as reported last year 1997 over the city of Arizona. There were 5 circular lights hovering over the house. They were in perfect formation...Exactly like the lghts reported on TV on the Arizona event...The lights hovered in the air and then disappeared one by one slowly into the dark of the night as though the darkness just opened up and the lights just slipped inside.

The time was approximately 1964 of 1965..I was only 17 or 18 years old, and I was standing outside with my boyfriend's little brother, who was only 5 yrs old at the time..The reason for reporting it now is because I was so impressed with the Arizona incident last year. I was young at the time and didn't know to report this. I didn't think anyone would believe me. My boyfriend at the time lived on Kildare Ave. If I remember correctly, the address was 2202 (or close to it). What I do remember is that he lived close to the corner, the 2 streets were Tripp Ave. and Kildare, in Chicago. The lights were white and very bright. Five lights across the sky and they were very low...there was absolutely no sound, moving ever so slowly...When I looked up, I was so excited, I told my Mikie to run in and get everyone to come outside to see...he was so frightened, he cried running up the stairs...well by the time anyone listened to him and they finally came out, the lights had disappeared into the sky as thou the sky opened up and the lights just slipped into the darkness one by one. On that morning of the announcement of the lights that appeared over Arizona, I went into shock, I didn't know who to call first....My best friend now, who is now my x-husband, I called. I was jumping up and down. I couldn't believe that there it was again. And now the whole world was finding out...THOSE were the exact same lights... I wanted to tell someone...I don't remember the exact date and time...But I remember the incident, I have never forgotten that night...I wanted to know if anyone else had seen those lights around that time.....It was the summer and it was either 1964 or 65, it may have even been 1963. I was married in 1965 which leaves me to believe it may have been 1963 or 1964, because it was befor I was married, and I was married on Aug. 21, 1965. Thank you.
