Another mysterious vehicle observed, Chicago fireworks display, July 4, 2011.

On July 4th, 2011, we were watching the fireworks on our highly tuned 40 in. t.v. when we noticed that through the actual explosions, and much higher than the horizon seen ufo, was a slowly moving {from the perspective of the viewing camera} cigar shaped craft lighted on the front and rear, with a group of lights, possibly square shaped, and from camera view moving slowly to the left. This occurrence lasted during a display of what one could describe as flashes of sparkles, through which my wife and I could perceive this vehicle.

I hesitated to inform the center because concurrently there was a search for a recent drowning victim by a helicopter, but upon reflection there would be little chance of such machine being that high and in reasonable distance from the explosions.

I have been told by Mr. davenport to contact the T.V. stations to have them confirm what we saw.
