Location: Jacksonville, IL
Shape: Sphere
Duration:20 seconds
4 orange glowing, non flickering spheres, very crisp and clear.

Was returning home from work and passing a radio station and tower on the East edge of town. Was going over a bridge over the rail road tracks and Sighted a Single light a few hundred feet above my car. First i thought it was beacon light on transmitter tower and realized it was solid orange and not the tower light. As i got to the top of the bridge I looked back forward and Saw 3 more. orange brightly glowing spheres. Weather was extremely foggy and could only see a few hundred feet in any direction. This is a 2 lane road i was on and couldnt jsut stop. I slowed to about 15 miles and hour and was leaning forward to look up at them thru the windshield. I had already past the first. the other 3 were in view. lasted 20 seconds at most. But they were 2-3 ft round spheres glowing a bright but defined and non-flickering orange light. At first i wanted to believe they were chinese lanters. But they were smooth round, and orange no flickering. they were moving east-south east fairly slowly. It was a calm foggy light. Once i got home <approx 2 minutes later> I decided to go look for them again. I drove around the area for 10-15 minutes stopping and looking all the way to the interstate and did not see them again.
