5 Yellow/Orange moving lights seen in sky over Algonquin, Illinois.

July 3rd, 2015, approx. 9:40PM CST to 10:00PM. Five separate orange lights appeared out of the eastern sky over Algonquin, Illinois.

Though there were fireworks in the distance, this was different. The four objects took off one at a time, soundless, they climbed out of the eastern sky to an altitude, when they moved around a little before finding a position where they remained. The intensity of each light changed, getting brighter and then slowly dimming until extinguished. This took 3-5 minutes each.

Too much energy would be required to launch, reach altitude and power a sufficiently bright light that could be seen maybe ½ mile away. Were they drones?

After burn-out, there was no sign that they fell to earth.

Local SWAT drones? DARPA?
