|That night after closing my garage door I glanced as I normally do towards the North Star..
to my amazement just west of the North star about the same angle were three red lights.. moving slowly in the sky. there were two equidistant from each other leading and a third that followed. They flickered much like a star or planet from atmospheric interference. I didnt notice any constant pattern it was very infrequent and sometimes.. flickered like some one playing with a light switch rather than atmosphere interuption.they seem to be traveling east north east and there foward momentum seemed very un uniformed. I woke my sixteen year old daughter up to witness this with me.. I even called my brother n law… He didnt observe them however my daughter did..at about a twenty degrees past the north star the lights took a more North East direction and when they did this the last trailing light seem to go out.. however this is probably due to the overpowering lights of chicago on the horizon.. Tried to get video however my new digital video camera is crud at night...and my luck the battery was dead..
I am ex coast guardsman and currently work as a paramedic for a private company here in Chicago. My daughter is an honors student at a private catholic school here in Chicago.. The police and the FAA have been very blunt..no items discovered.. I find this very troubling to say the least..
Thank you for your time.. ((name deleted))
