Bolingbrook sighting in Illinois on May 17th 2001

Just as those people in Bolingbrook reported at a later time, I saw a globe in the sky while traveling north. I thought it was the top of a new water tower as a golf course set of trees was covering the bottom 2/3rds of the the craft.

It was a steel gray in color, and just hung there or at least the top of it did, and I asked myself, when did they build that! I saw the sighting on May 17th of 2001 on your sight and knew, it was exactly what I saw.

The time was earlier than they said, but there is no water tower, for I chacked the area a hour or so later looking for it, it does not exist, yet I saw it!
