Occurred : 9/30/2005 23:00 (Entered as : 09/30/2005 23:00)
Reported: 10/2/2005 4:03:13 PM 16:03
Posted: 10/11/2005
Location: Orland Park, IL
Shape: Light
Duration: 5-7 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Strang red lights appear in the sky.

I was outside in front of my house late Friday night, and I saw what looked like two red stars. I couldn't believe what I was seeing so I went into the house and got my boyfriend to verify what I was seeing.

He was also amazed and so we brought my sister outside to make sure we weren't just seeing things. We were all amazed by these red lights. It looked just like two red stars.

At first we thought they might be airplane lights but then we used reference points to see if they were moving and neither one of them moved. Also, airplane lights blink rythmically and these lights had absolutely no blinking pattern. They were fading in and out and almost twinkling at the same time.

Another thing that was very odd was that the color was not stark red; rather, it was an orangish-red. Then after about five to seven minutes they just vanished.

Two days later, an article appeard in the local newspaper saying that many people in the area witnessed this as well. -Very strange!

(NUFORC Note: All reports of the two sightings (23:15 hrs., 30SE05, and 01:10 hrs., 01OC05) from Illinois will be passed along to Dr. Mark Rodighier, Director of the CENTER FOR UFO STUDIES, Chicago, as well as to Mr. Dave Marler, State Director of the MUTUAL UFO NETWORK for the State of Illinois, who will pass them along to his Field Investigators in the Chicago area.

We would be most grateful if witnesses to this event would please submit a detailed report of their sighting, using the ONLINE REPORT FORM on our website, and we will pass those reports along to those two investigators above. PD))
