The "intense whistling and displacement of air" was all that was heard, but it was enough to strike terror into sane individual.

What began as interesting ended in fright. Let me explain further of my sighting. My friend and I were sitting and talking in front of his home on a warm June (Sunday) night. We both were talking on how are day went and mind you we were never under the influence of any kind of narcotic or alcohol for that mater. Both of us are in the status of the upper middle class society (at least I am uper middle class).Well, so we both sat talking when we heard an "intense whistling and displacemnet of air". These sounds are not foreign to us, for we both heard them at least 10 other times the last year and a half. After hearing these "intense whistling and displacements of air" all was quiet again (except the loud planes from O'Hare airport). Sitting proceeding with our conversations I saw an intense bright object in the shape of a circle floating in the western sky.At first I thought it was a visible star/planet but this was much more intense in lighting. It was flying northbound, but as it "hovered" north it gradually faded until nothing of it was visible. A few minutes later we heard the "intense whistling displacement of air" seemingly right above of where we sat. My friend has a street light/lamp in front of his home that has always shone (at night) as long as we both could remember, which suddenly turned off and we were imersed in darkness. At this point both of us were quite scared and I had to go. Wanting my friends company on the way home, we heard the same "intense whistling and dispplacement of air" above us. When we arrived at my house, which is only down the block, my friend needed me to drive him back home. Granted, he only had to walk about a block to go home but that is to show how sacred my friend was. Indeed, I too was quite affriad so after I dropped my friend off and parked my car I ran inside my home in utter terror.

((NUFORC Note: Given that the witnesses apparently have experienced the same phenomenon on many occasions in the recent past, it makes us wonder whether they are hearing the vortex turbulence generated by the wings of aircraft passing low overhead. If Harwood Heights is on the approach to a major airport, that might be the explanation. PD))
