On February 20, 2017, at 8:11 P.M., I, ((name deleted)), ((teenager)), saw multiple UFOs outside my window on my Southwest Airlines flight. I was on a class trip from Chicago to D.C., and upon our arrival home back to Chicago at 8:11 P.M. is when I saw it, at first it was simply a couple of lights moving ever so slightly fading in and out but then more lights arrived towards the right side of my window. (Note that the lights were very far away so I do not know the size or if this was a physical craft or simply a light.) more and more began to appear and I managed to capture all of it on my IPhone 6S.

According to my Iphone, the location of the video begins at Coyote Run Golf Course, before my landing at Midway International Airport. There is no sound in the video and this may be because my headphones were plugged in at the time because I was watching a downloaded television series. Although I don't know if that is the reason, I beleive it to be that it was the result of my faulty headphone microphone.

My friend, who I told the entire experience to wanted to see the video but I couldn't send the video because it was to big to send, so he insisted on me posting it on YouTube which I did, in case anyone had any questions about my video who wasn't my friend I put all the basic information in the description.

I do not have any explanation for the aircraft I saw, this was a UFO because this wasn't my first sighting, I had another sighting down the street from my own home, (26037 Whispering Woods Circle). I don't know if they are connected to me in some way or if it is simply an improbable coincidence. I ask that you respond because I too research and soon investigate UFOs and other paranormal and supernatural phenomena, I am no fraud I simply think that I should report this because I believe that my story along with everyone else's have a right to be heard.

((NUFORC Note: We first posted this report on March 10, 2017, but we did so, without having spoken with the witness. We have attempted to reach him via telephone, but have not been successful yet in speaking with him. We are uncertain as to whether the report is a serious account of a genuine sighting, or whether it might be an attempt to submit a hoaxed report. The duration of the sighting that was indicated by the witness makes us doubly suspicious.

Also, when we first posted the report, we inadvertently overlooked the fact that the witness had included his name in the report, which we now have deleted. The oversight was our fault, a result of our dealing with a daunting workload, at the time. PD))
