UFO Sighting On Saturday, April 7th, 2018, approximately 8:00pm, I got up to let my dog out into the backyard. It was a cold but, a clear night and I looked up and saw 2 glowing orange objects with white headlights that didn’t look like airplanes. I thought could they be helicopters? I felt that they were flying too close together and they were not making any noise.

I watched for maybe a minute and I saw more aircraft. They were in single file formation, some were flying side by side. I called to my granddaughter and told her to bring her phone. I tried to count how many. I think I counted up to 20. They weren’t moving fast but, not too slow, but at a steady pace. They were headed southeast towards Crete, Il.

My granddaughter did manage to capture a video. I asked a few of my neighbors, but of course they didn’t see anything. I just can’t imagine why there were not any more witnesses because they were in full view for so long.

They lit up the sky; illuminating stars that I believe couldn’t be seen without their illumination. After, they left the sky was still glowing and the stars were still shining for what seemed like a minute.
