2nd sighting in 6 months Wildwood/Grayslake area Illinois

This is the second sighting of similar objects within the past 6 months for me. I first saw 2 objects on 4/26/2001 and a report was filed and on this web site. This time I was able to distinquish a little more detail than the first time. I observed directly west of Route 45 and Center Street, Grayslake, IL 2 bright lites stationary in the sky. They were not moving as in the first sighting. This time I was able to get my wife to view these objects with me and with binnoculars. There were round and had lights which seemed to be like a multiple strings descending from top to bottem. They could have been windows but were too far distant to really confirm. When I looked at them with just my normal eyesight they were very bright in the sky, and with the binnoculars I could distinquish the strands of lights on the side of the object. They were quite a way's off in the distance but were very large. They started moving towards the south west after about 15 minutes until they disappeared. Once they started moving, they moved rather slowly, or at least it appeared they did from my view. The first sighting I had they moved very fast.
