|Three bright objects verticle stance. Top two fire orange with moving outer shell . One pretended to be part of satellite tower.
Looking southwest over wooded wetland area by my house l saw three circular objects through my night vision glasses. As is routine I removed the glasses to check is they were visible without IR. The top two were orange which appeared to me to be roiling like; that is having intense internal movement with spiky protections of same red - orange material, the lowest one was not visible with naked eye was that vacant sort of luminescence. I moved into a position down my driveway and closer towards objects, at this point I have no reference to mark height or distance.
Sitting on ground looking still southwesterly paying for the first time attention to the clouds and noticed two huge thunderheads coming in towards us they were barely noticeable with naked eye but through night vision they were full of electricity . Following the objects one of the orange and the lower one disappeared.
The remaining orange object or so it seemed to me put itself over a satellite tower about a mile away same direction southwest . As I saw it, it was almost pretending it was the lowest light on the tower for perhaps three minutes. Then all the lights were the their proper color white no more orange balls afire! Meanwhile I was fascinated with the huge amount of electricity in the clouds and I suppose I was trying to logically figure out if there was a connection I have never seen ball lightening and don't even know if it comes by Chicago. Around the flashes in the clouds appeared other objects . Whiter than white funnel shapes spinning into discs whiz away from the left thunderhead clearly distinctly having an independent visable ( life?) of their own. I saw two perhaps three of these and then horizontal white flashes emanating from the clouds. Yes we had a large downpour early morning. Yes also this was weird. Will keep you posted.
