Duration:10 minutes
Fast, flickering, ball of red and white lights seen in the northern sky traveling I57 near Peotone, Illinois

I was driving north on I57 from Kankakee to Frankfort, my eyes were on the skies, as it was a clear, dark night with many stars visible. I witnessed the "red lights" on 10/31/04 from Frankfort, Illinois, and since then, I have been watching the skies at night whenever it was possible. I saw a ball shaped object in the Northeast sky that was flickering between red and white lights, it was a super fast flicker, and it rotated where the flickering came from on the object. It would flicker in one spot, and then a second later in another spot, but on the same object, traveling at the same speed. I don't know how else to describe it. I called my husband (in Frankfort), and asked him to look, he was unable to see it. I watched it travel east until I couldn't see it anymore, (only because I was driving, and literally couldn't view it anymore, but I don't know if it disappeared). Minutes later, while still on my phone with my husband, it came into view again, this time traveling from the east to the west. It was the exact same object, traveling at the same speed. Again, I lost view of it in the western sky only because I was driving, and couldn't watch it and drive safely.

I know it seems weird that I have observed something again, but obviously something is going on, and it has peaked my interest to observe and watch the skies whenever I can.
