Location: South Elgin, IL
Shape: Formation
Duration:5 minutes
three orange circular lights travelling WSW in area of South Elgin, IL, a far west suburb of Chicago.

At approximately 9:30pm Central Time, on Sunday, June 22. I was standing in the street, on Sandhurst Lane, South Elgin, IL, 60177 USA, facing East.

I saw 3 orange lights travelling West-South-West just above the line of air travel. They were travelling in a formation, in a triangle, then changed to a straight line formation, then an inverted triangle, before disappearing behind the tree-rooftop-line.

I watched to see if they would re-appear on the other side of the obstructions, and they did, just moments before changing formation again to a straight line, then disappearing.

There was some slight cloud cover, although not in the area where they disappeared.

There was no sound emitted from the craft.

There were several airline-type jets in the area, although none appeared to be in pursuit of the craft.

The observer is a female, 39 yo, was fully rested, not under the influence of any substances & is college educated.

Duration of entire encounter was 5 minutes.
