Location: Frankfort, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes
The evening of 9-11 we lost our electricity which was very frightening after what happened earlier that day. We went outside, the sky was so clear, and to the west was a white streak of light, similiar to a contrail, but not dissipating as they do. It was visible for about 15 minutes and just disappeared gradually. I saw that Bolingbrook also lost their power which is about 35 miles from me. I never found out what caused the power outage. but it was light outside and power was back on by 8 or 8:30. There was nothing about the outage in the local papers either. I now find that odd since reading that Bolingbrook also lost power.
