4 unidentified objects appeared in night sky in a formation of a "Y" hovering for several minutes.

On July 4th, 2008, in Elmhurst, Illinois at approximately 9:30pm, 4 unidentified objects appeared in the night sky over the adjacent town of Bensenville, Illinois.

At that time, my wife and I were watching the fireworks display taking place several miles to the north. We were sitting on the roof of our house, as in pervious years.

The 4 objects appeared to the east of the fireworks, approximately 1-2 miles at an altitude of approximately 2-3 thousand feet in the air. The formation was in the shape of a "Y." The objects hovered at this location for several minutes, then disappeared.

The objects were not fireworks in the sky. They were physical objects illuminated and hovering for several minutes. This location is 4 miles south of O’Hare international airport. No aircraft would ever be allowed to be that close to each other, especially 4 objects.

I am submitting this report with the hope other people witnessed the objects and will report them as well. No pictures were taken.

No camera was in hand.
