Mother and daughter see "firework" stop, turn into some type of craft.

Telephoned Report: A mother and daughter telephoned NUFORC on August 21, 2004, to report that they had witnessed a very peculiar event from their 22nd-floor apartment in downtown Chicago during the previous evening.

Both witnesses reported that they witnessed one, or more, bright lights, that “looked like fireworks, but with no tail,” moving toward their building. Suddenly, the lights reportedly stopped, and turned into some type of unlighted ship, hovering motionless in the night sky. Then, the witnesses reported, the first ship appeared to “split” into two seemingly similar-looking craft.

Neither of the witnesses thought she had ever seen a UFO before.

((NUFORC Note: We found these witnesses to be quite sincere, we thought. PD))
