CHEVRON CRAFTS RACE OVER CHICAGO SUNDAY 3-25-01

AT APPROXIMATELY 8:00 PM SUNDAY NIGHT I WAS OBSERVING THE SOUTHERN SKY OF CHICAGO (THE FIRST CLEAR NIGHT EXCEPT FOR A FEW LOWER CLOUDS),SOMETHING BROUGHT MY ATTENTION TO LOOK SLIGHTLY WEST AND ALMOST STRAIGHT UP, I LIVE CLOSE TO THE LOOP,AND I SAW A GROUP OF WHAT LOOKED TO ME TO BE A TIGHT GOUP OF SOME KIND OF CRAFT STREAKING NORTHWARD. THEY WERE CHEVRON SHAPED AND IN AT THAT MOMENT IN A TIGHT BUNCHED-UP FORMATION.I RAN-RAN! ACROSS TO THE FRONT OF MY HOUSE AND YELLED FOR MY BROTHER TO LOOK OUT THE FRONT DOOR. HE ALSO SAW THE CRAFT WHICH NOW WERE CHANGING POSITIONS AMONGST EACH OTHER ALMOST MAGICALLY.THE SPEED IN WHICH THEY TRAVELED FROM THE SOUTHERN TO THE NORTHERN SKY WAS INCREDIBLE I'M BY O'HARE AIRPORT AND I'VE SEEN AIRPLANES BEFORE THESE WERE NOT AIRPLANES!!!! JUST FOR GOOD MEASURE I ALSO NOTICED THAT ALONG LAKE MICHIGANS SHORELINE AT LEAST 4 (FROM WHAT I COULD SEE) BATTERIES OF SEARCHLIGHTS BEGAN WHAT APPEARS TO BE FRANTICALLY SEARCHING THE SKIES WEST OVER CHICAGO. I'VE SEEN PROMOTIOANAL LIGHT SHOWS AND THIS DIDN'T APPEAR TO BE ONE DUE TO THE NUMBER OF LIGHTING BATTERIES INCLUDED IN WHAT SEEMED AN AERIAL SEARCH. CRAZY AS IT MAY SOUND THER ARE NOW STRAIGHT LINE LOOKING CLOUDS RUNNING EAST TO WEST OVER TO THE SOUTH OF CHICAGO (CHEM-TRAILS? AFTER THESE CRAFT WERE SIGHTED, IN CHICAGO NAWWW!) NEVER THOUGHT I'D SAY IT- I'M PERPLEXED BELEIVER IN WHAT I SAW.
