|We saw 3 red lights over the sky near Tinley Park.
My mom and I were driving home and as we were about to pull up on our driveway in Mokena, we looked up in the sky and saw the 3 red lights in a triangle. They were in mid-sky, south-east of our house, in the Tinley Park direction. We jumped out of our car and stood in the street to see them better. We called our neighbors immediately, when we noticed the lights, and 2 of them joined us, as well as my sister. Our neighbors called their brother, who was at a different location, and he saw them as well. The lights shifted to near the horizon line, but were clearly red, not blinking, and in a triangle position. We crossed the street and stood on the bleachers at Grasmere Park to see them better, since they were now lower in the sky. The lights moved into a straight line at one point, then moved back into a triangle. After a few minutes, one light began to move away to the left (west). The other 2 stayed in position but moved further away until they were out of sight. Also, another guy in our neighborhood walked over and saw them when they were on the horizon. These lights were very similar to the ones we saw in August 2004, but they did not stay in the sky as long. We did try to take a photo from my sister's camera, but she couldn't zoom in close enough.
((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with this witness, and he seemed to us to be quite serious-minded, and quite credible. PD))
