Jet Aircraft chase Ball of Light over Odin Illinois

One ball of light flew around in the vicinity of Scott AFB with 2 fighter type aircraft giving chase for approx 30 minutes on the night of July 30, 2009. Ball of light would move accross the sky the jets would give chase and ball of light would change direction in a 90 degree move and the jets would try to give chase but could not seem to turn nearly as sharp as the ball of light. sound of jets shook the ground, unknown if ball of light made any noise due to the jet aircraft.

((NUFORC Note: It is unclear to us how there can be jet fighter activity for 30 minutes, and yet we receive only one report. This may not be a serious report, we wonder. PD))
