Same UFO from Orland Parlk / Tinley Park?

On Friday, August 20th I drive home on Archer Ave. heading west. I had just finished renting couple of movies from Blockbuster Video. As I drove on Archer Ave. I saw a plane which I thought it was, but the flickering lights was what changed my mind that this was no plane, helicopter or any man object.

As I approached home, this object kept going in circles (counter clock-wise). I parked my car and kept looking at it. It made no sound. At this time I was in front of my home. So I called my dad to come look at this. he was laying down on the bed watching the news. When I told him to bring the video camera, he jumped and knew I wasn't kidding. As my father was getting the video camera, I kept watching this object making its counter clock-wise circles when suddenly it cut through the circle. It was like drawing a circle and half way through the circle making a straight line to where you starting at. It was weird.

When my dad came out, he said, "it's a helicopter". I insisted that it wasn't when suddenly 3 fire balls fell from this object. One after the other. They looked like small comets burning down from the sky. Now the object shot north bound then toward us in great speed heading to the Orland Park/Tinley Park vincinity.

I called 911, to report this, but they didn't care. So here is my story. What it was, I believe it wasn't from this world that's for sure! R.Enriquez
