Shape: Fireball
Event was televised on the 10 PM news. A man had video footage of the event north of Galesburg. Many orange lights were seen going on and off across the northern horizon.

As far as can be said in the account on the television, it was an amateur camera operator who was trying out new equipment. The footage shows the lights first coming on. Then one after the other they start coming on slower and faster. In all there were about 6 or 7 objects. They continually flash from anywhere between 20 minutes to an hour. This is not the first time that anything like this has happened. They were sighted numerous times at my work place in Knoxville on the 3rd shift. We have no conclusions to what they might be. We have tried chasing them down before but they always seem to stay about a half-mile to mile ahead of us. The usual time occurences for these incidents is between 11pm and 4 am. I will continue to watch but would like any suggestions to its origin. By the way, the things are sighted at the place where i work. The facility is by an interstate and for some reason the objects dont come out unless there is no cars going by.
