Location: Ipava, IL
Shape: Formation
Duration:
The u.f.o. looked like a firework that shoots up but never explodes.

3 friends and I were swinging on a swingset in a public park in a town of about 540 people (counting the suburb)

above and to the left of the swingset stands a big, and fairly tall tree it was about 10:08 (Central Time) and we seen what looked to be a professional firework shooting from the ground up from abot 50 meters from behind the tree. As I was waiting for it to explode...it didn't! I thought it to be a dud but it was dead silent and it would have made a fairly loud "boom" if it were a firework, but it had no sound.

There were about 10 small, bright balls of lights lined straight up. Right after we seen them they sinchronizingly (sp?) disapeared altogether. As they disapeared i seen one of the middle balls curve out of formation with the other and there were airplanes or jets flying behind it. Then we seen this bright yellow light swerving all over the place but it slowly got dimmer and dimmer until it was gone.
