10 orange/red round objects size of a large plane lights at night - this happened during fourth of July fireworks,

July 7, 2009:

On July 4, 2009, approximately around 9:30 p.m. my husband pointed out a moving orange/red glowing light. We were facing north and the light was coming towards us slightly to the left side of the north, and to see the lights we needed to lift our heads up slightly in the distance the objects were coming from. When the object reached about 90 degrees to the left of its location, the object started to rise upward. As it did, I saw two more objects appear from the same point as the first one. The same thing happened. By the time the other two objects’ reach the other on, two more came out and the first object was very high in the sky and diminished. The angle we had to look at the first object was at that 90 degree angle from the way we were looking when it was closest to us. The object had seemed to rise a little below the stars and faded away. This happened up to about ten objects. Time frame is around 15 minutes. We did no further investigation because I am skeptical and we had guest over watching the fire works. However, we believe in “anything is possible.” Today I went online to see if anyone reported this. I did find someone in Bartlett, Illinois. This town is about 10 to 15 minutes away and east of our location. He explained it in a similar way then the way it happened here. That confirmed to me that these were coming from other places. If these were homemade, I do not think the person could do this in other location that far away and have these objects follow one another. The man from Bartlett said the object got to a point where they formed in a line together. Then, I remembered looking on the internet and seeing that it has happened in other places than Illinois. I have seen similar pictures on the internet of that formation of lights.

The object's sizes were almost the size of airplane lights off in a short distance. The lights, to me, glowed ever so softly, but were powerful in brightness. When I was observing how they were approaching it as though they were dangling from something, like a tiny helium balloon. However, we could not see any object connected to these lights. There were other people there is well and they saw the same thing. They may come forward, but who knows. We will try.

One last thing, Back in the early 1980’s, my ex-husband told me that he was walking in an old area by his house and saw a hovering craft. He said he was approached and told if he said anything that he would be killed. This happened in Carpentersville Illinois in a vacant area off of route 31 in Carpentersville, Illinois. The land used to be a race track. Which is technically North of where I live now. This is all I have to offer. I do believe that there is something. Are they spying ships for the government, UFO’s? I will never say they are a hoax anymore. There is something. Thank you for your time.
