|Red revolving light in Illinois
We were walking in the door as I caught a light in the corner of my eye. I looked up and it was a bright red light fairly high in the atmosphere. My husband and my mother both saw the light and we watched it. It stayed stationary, but it looked like it was revolving, the brightness of the light was almost the same effect a lighthouse has, as it rotates the intensity of the light became brighter. An airplane passed fairly close to it, but it seemed to be even higher up than the airplane. It then zipped to another spot and rotated a few more times then the light slowly disappeared, it did not move left or right it went up. Tried to take a picture of it, but could not get a good picture with the camera we have, also do not have binoculars or a telescope to have gotten a better look.
