Eight Bright Triangular Shaped Orange Lights Traveling Across Sky

Just before a July 3rd Firework show in Barrington, IL, at approx 9:30pm, there were 8 bright orange triangular lights that were traveling slowly across the sky at the same pace.

We first thought they were a bunch of airplanes or helicopters in the distance but as they grew closer we could only see the bright orange lights. They glowed for about 8-10 minutes then each slowly faded away.

Later that evening, at approx. 10:30 pm, there were 2 more of the same exact lights that were seen away from where the lights were first seen. Those two lights, faded at the same time.

((NUFORC Note: NUFORC also received a number of telephoned reports from Chicago, for the evenig of July 3rd. A number of party-goers witnessed five yellow lights in the northern sky, and three of the attendees of the party telephoned our Hotline. We do not know if the source of this report was one of those individuals at that party. PD))
