My Brother Had Seen Something Up In The Sky!!! Date Of Event: Saturday, January 24, 2004- Time of Occurrence: Between hours of: 7pm to 8pm. during the evening- Location: ((deleted)) Store over at ((street deleted)) & Narragansett Ave.- City: Chicago, Midway Clearing District- State: Illinois- Witnesses: 3- It was on a cold Saturday evening in the month of January, while my brother Chuck who was working at Shop-N-Save Food Store over at 63rd Street & Narragansett Ave. I was home that evening sick in bed with the flu, but I was already in bed sleeping.

When my brother ((name deleted)) got home from work, he said that he had a weird evening at his job. He had told me that he had seen something strange up into the sky, while he was gathering up the shopping carts out in the front parking lot of the store.

That evening it was a clear night (after it snowed during the day on Saturday) there was a quarter moon and a bright star next right to it; setting out in the west. ((deleted)) said that he’d seen this strange looking craft, just hovering over to the southwest; of were the moon and the bright star was. He said that this strange craft was way bigger than a huge jet plane, and it had 3 enormous lights. (blinking in alternate patterns) It had hovered in the same spot for about 5 minuts without moving anywhere, but as soon a customer walked up and ask ((deleted)) a quick question, ( which was no more than 20 seconds) the strange looking craft had just vanish into mid air; Just as ((deleted)) turned his head to see if the strange craft was still there?
