|It was so huge it took my breath away. At first I thought it was the moon until I opend my sun roof and saw the moon above me. I followed it and saw that it had a flashing light in the middle of it and the rest of it was just glowing with light. It was moving very slow. It kind of looked like the plantet Saturn. Other people saw it, and planes in the sky were turning around. It looked ot me like they were trying to avoid it. My ears started to ring, I dont know if that has enything to do with it but just thought I'd add it in.

Peter, I noticed in this week's Filer's Files that you had contributed two sightings from Illinois. I wanted to let you know that these sightings were undoubtedly caused by the Virgin Lightship, which was flying around the western and northern suburbs of Chicago that week and caused several calls to CUFOS. Also, I wanted to remind you, as we discussed before, that we are ready to investigate cases in northeastern Illinois, such as these two. So please send cases to my attention when you get them. Thanks. Mark RodeghierCUFOS"
NUFORC expresses its gratitude to Mark and to CUFOS for clarification about this sighting report.))
