Location: Dekalb, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:10 sec.
at 10:00 pm I saw a pin point of light slowly descending into a area were there nothing for miles but cornfields

I was at a get together with some friends and was having a conversation with a person whose back was to a open window. I then noticed a point of light slowing descending toward the ground,it was perhaps 1 to 1.5 miles away. I noticed it and commented about to my friend. I thought it was strange for a aircraft to land in a corn field that surrounded the apartment building we were in that night.

The next day I read in the local paper about the state patrol been called by a farmer who saw some bright lights on his land. The police then chased and were chased by these airbourne lights that night. To this day I wished I had gone out to have a closer look at this light that came down from the sky.
