May 2nd 2011 UFO sightings

it started off as a very very bright light in sky, as if it were a giant fire ball falling, as me and my siblings watched, it came closer and closer, we were able to see a bunch of redish orange lights and a giant circle like ship that must have been about 100ft in the air..close enough for us to see that it was NOT a plane or a helicopter, right at the corner of the speedway gas station on milwaukee and deerfield.

we pulled over and watched it get closer and closer..we had to turn the car around to get a better view and as we did..it just vanished.

About an hour later we arrived home..made a call to the national ufo report center..after we hung up we saw the same exact thing right outside of our window..my sibling and i ran out and started chasing this ufo and we saw it quickly vanish above a bunch of trees.. it looked like it was heading towards the gas station again.

we saw it a third time..in our backyard it was much much further but all those flashy spin! ning lights in the sky..we knew it couldnt of been a plane or anything along those lines. as we watched it flying around and stood for a while in the sky.. it disapeared again..leaving us in total shock.


((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and we found him to be sincere and sober-minded. English is not a native language for him; he had been in the U. S. for just a few days, when the sighting occurred. PD))
