Location: Montrose, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:15-20 minute
Ball of light Chased by U.S. military

Me and a friend were looking up and we both seen at the same time a light that was flashing, just a bit brighter than the stars and almost had a red tint to it here and there and was moving in almost a triangle form slowly. It was not flashing quickly, like a planes would. The object disappeared behind a tree that was in our way and didn't see anything for about another 5 min. Then we look up again and I don't know if it was a different UFO, but this one was streaking across the sky almost like a satellite looks, almost the same spot where we lost the other UFO, but this was having various speeds and disappearing ever so slightly heading east, north east, and as we were watching it out of the west and south there were what we think military planes looking for this object! There were 3 planes all together, and before all of this there were no planes in the sky! also before these events happened we seen the best shooting star with a pretty blue tail trailing off the end of it.

The planes keep going over and around the spot where the UFO disappeared for about another 20 min. I really wish i had a camera with me at the time!
