Location: Sullivan, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
a series of reddish/orange glow-type lights

A reddish-orange glow or light appeared just over the treetops to the sse from our front porch. One appeared for a about 5 seconds and then disappeared. Then another one appeared about 30 seconds later in a different location - same general position over the treetops but to the right of the last one. That lasted about 5 seconds and then disapppeared and then immediately another one appeared at a distance of several miles from the last one to the left. This went on for about 10 minutes and we saw a total of approximately 8 altogether. The light did not fade in anyway. It just appeared and then disappeared. It did not move whatsoever. There was no arcing or pulsating. We saw a falling star to the east of us during this time, also. We also saw a white light similar to a plane to our north moving westward about 9:15 p.m. that appeared to bounce along and did not pulsate or flash like other planes did in the same area.
