Location: Mokena/Matteson, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:~20 seconds
Five bright lights not in formation seemed to be flying quickly that disappeared within 20 seconds.

I was driving down 191st Street going East between Rt. 45 and Harlem Avenue when I had seen 5 lights in the distance which would be in the next city (Matteson) from the look of where they were in the air. They were very bright although not flying in formation, but flying near each other at a distance of maybe a 1/8th of a mile or so between each.

Again, no formation as they were spread across a slightly wide distance of maybe 3/4 mile to a mile across.

The sky was bright in between so they were separate entities.

By the time I had gotten to the next cross street (80th Ave),

I could no longer see them which makes me think they were flying very fast. They seemed to all be white.

I tried to take a picture, but didn't turn out.
