Duration:5 minutes
5 bright orange glowing lights traveling over Naperville Illinois

We saw 5 bright orange lights; the lights did not blink or flicker, but were bright and steady. They descended from high in the sky, following each other in a row. They did not make any noise at all, and did not move like airplanes. There flight was very smooth, almost as if they were floating. They preceeded towards us and became brighter. People in their cars stopped to observe the phenomenon backing up traffic in a very busy intersection. Two of the balls of light appeared to get close together, almost as if to touch, but then split apart quickly and went opposite directions and faded away. One remained bright, and quickly darted westward away from the others. The two others disappeared from site. A small plane heading west was in the sky at the same time and appeared obviously different from the others. I tried to use my cellphone to make a call and it wouldn't work. I continued to press the buttons but they wouldn't function. About three minutes after t! he event ended, my phone began to work again.
