Reported: 5/8/2005 10:09:17 AM 10:09
Posted: 5/11/2005
Location: Hawthorn Woods, IL
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 1 hour
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
saw a triangular formation of red lights in the sky

Me and my family were driving home at around 9:00 at night when we saw a triangular formation of bright red lights above our neighborhood. They just sat there, in the sky, not moving.

When I was inside playing Half Life, I decided to check if it was still there. It was. Then a half hour later, I checked again but now it was gone.

((NUFORC Note: Witness, who elects to remain totally anonymous, indicates that the date of the event is approximate. We suspect the witness may allude to the dramatic cluster of red lights seen over Tinley Park on either August 21, 2004, or October 31, 2004, although they were nowhere near Hawthorn Woods, which is to the northwest of downtown Chicago. We have changed the date above to the former. PD))
