BIG ORANGE CIRCLE GLOW OF LIGHT OVER FIELDS OF ILLINOIS

THIS HAS HAPPENED SEVERAL TIMES HERE AND JUST NORTH EAST OF OUR HOUSE . IT BEGAN AROUND 2006 AND CONTINUE . I DO NOT RECALL THE MONTH OR EXACT TIME OF THE EVENING . I HAD BEEN COMING HOME FROM WORK AT MIDNIGHT THE FIRST TIME I SAW IT . IT WAS A ORANGE LIGHT I THE SKY . I WATCHED AS I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE HIGHWAY UNTIL I TURNED OFF TO GO DOWN THE COUNTRY ROAD ON THE WAY TO MY HOUSE ABOUT 3 MILES. I COULD STILL SEE IT BETWEEN THE TREES . I PULLED UP TO MY MAIL BOX AND AS I LOOKED OUT OVER OR THROUGH THE TREES I SAW MANY OF THE LIGHTS . THEY SEEMED TO BE IN A CIRCLE AND AT THIS TIME OVER THE FIELD ABOUT 2 - 3 MILES NE AND JUST ABOVE THE TREES. I THOUGHT IT WAS ONE LARHE OBJECT. I GOT SCARED AND BEGAN DRIVING VERY QUICKLY UP TO THE HOUSE HONKING AS I WENT TO GET MY HUSBAND AND SONS ATTENTION. I GOT OUT OF THE CAR RAN INSIDE AS I WAS RUNNING IN I WAS TELLING THEM TO COME TO THE FRONT DOOR AND LOOK OUT TO SEE THE UFO . WHEN I GOT THERE IT WAS GONE .

I BEGAN SEEING THIS ON A REGULAR BASIS AND WAS REALLY BEGINNING TO GET VERY AFRAID . MY SON AND I WAS DRIVING DOWN THE SAME HIGHWAY THE SAME DIRECTION AND I LOOKED UP AND SAID OH MY GOD LOOK AT THAT . THAT IS WHAT I SAW THE NIGHT I RAN IN YELLING. THIS TIME THERE WERE 2 OF THEM . THEY LOOKED AS THOUGH THEY WERE ON EITHER SIDE OF THE HIGHWAY BUT UP IN THE AIR . I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY FEET. SUDDENLY THE LIGHTS WENT OFF LIKE SOMEONE JUST FLIPPED A LIGHT SWITCH. THEN THEY CAME RIGHT BACK ON ONLY THEY WERE BOTH ON THE SOUTH SIDE . THEN OFF AGAIN AND ONE WAS BACK ON THE LEFT SIDE THEY DID THIS A LITTLE WHILE. I TURNED DOWN THE ROAD BUT STOPPED TO TRY TO GET A PICTURE OF IT ON MY CELL PHONE BUT WHEN I TRIED MY PHONE WAS ALL JUMBLED.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO EXPLAIN IT. THIS HAD NEVER HAPPENED WITH MY PHONE BEFORE AND I WAS VERY CONFUSED. MY SON SAID THAT IT WAS LIKE WHAT HE AND HIS FATHER HAD SEEN ONE NIGHT BUT HE WAS TOLD NOT TO TELL ME BECAUSE THEY KNEW HOW AFRAID I HAD GOTTEN BEFORE. I CONTINUE TO SEE THESE AND ALWAYS IN THE SAME AREA. THE ONLY THINGS THAT ARE OUT HERE IS A GRAIN ELEVATER AND FIELDS,FARMS ETC. AND NOT TO CLOSE TOGETHER. WHAT IS IT AND WHAT DO THEY WANT.
