I was driving home from work headed north on Rt. 50 coming through the town of Monee and headed into the Beecher/Crete area. There is a racetrack in Crete and I frequently see lights form over that area for no reason. These are hovering bright white lights low to the ground, they are not helicopters or airplanes.
I initially saw two lights that turned into four light in the shape of a triangle but it was not a fixed object because a couple of lights would slightly move out of formation. As I was focusing in on what this formation was I turned to the left to kind of see behind me as I was rounding a curve and I saw more lights that were bright, white and the same size and they made an even bigger formation. I was only able to count about 10 lights but there may have been more behind me that I could not see.
I had a very unnerving moment where when I looked up at the expanse of the sky it was a complete horseshoe and they were all in a line and just hovered and were bright. I cannot believe the news did not report on it, I was not the only one on the road - there were plenty of us driving that night. I have a feeling there were more lights behind me but my vantage point would not allow me to look as I had to concentrate on the road.
When I pulled into my driveway, I got out of the vehicle hoping to see a big circle or the entire formation of the lights and half of them were gone. Then I saw a couple more lights just go out. Then there was nothing. It was incredibly weird and I felt uneasy about it. The duration from when I initially saw the first couple of lights was about 20 minutes-half hour.
