UFO moving in a triangular movement over Rockford, IL. It moved back and forth and up and down. Then slowly dissapeared.

I was camping on Labor day weekend at a State Park near Loves Park, IL/ Rockford, IL. The state park is called Rock Cut State Park.

My husband and I went to sleep in our tents but left the top open with the screen on so we can look at the stars. Off to my right I saw a so-called star that was a bit brighter than most and kept going in and out of being dim and bright. I focused on this one single object.

All of a sudden it started going up and down quickly then right to left quickly. I immediately pointed this out to my husband and asked him it was just me or did that move. He agreed with me. he said it moved.

Then he stared at it with me and pointed out that it was going in a triangular movement. Sort of like it was making a invisible triangle.

This seemed to be quite far away. Eventually it got so dim that it was gone. I kept questioning myself thinking that maybe it was something else but we KNOW NOW that this was a UFO.

We saw planes go by late at night and they were planes. I saw 2 shooting stars and those were shooting stars. This object that I thought was a star until it started making these movements was, indeed, a UFO.

It was the color of a star mainly.
