Location: Geneva, IL
Shape: Unknown
Duration:1-1 minute
Two non-blinking red lights moved south to north. The lights covered 90 degrees of arc in approximately one minute. There were no white or green lights. There was no sound. There was no sound.

My wife and I were going for our evening walk. We were watching the sky for possible meteors as the Leonids were approaching. We noticed these two red lights moving from South to North, but could not see any shape of an aircraft with the lights. The lights were very odd. They looked diffused. We had to keep re-focusing on them to keep them in sight even though they were directly overhead and not that far away. We estimate the lights at an altitude of 10,000 to 20,000 feet based on the planes that were in the sky at that time. We live about 24 miles from O'Hare airport in Chicago. At any given time, we can see at least a dozen planes in the sky. The sky was perfectly clear. The strangest thing was the lack of any sound and the way the lights appeared. Lights from other planes in the sky at the time were sharply visible. These were fuzzy. Both my wife and I have college educations and have been in the business world for decades.
