National UFO Reporting Center Sighting Report
Occurred : 9/30/2005 23:00 (Entered as : 09/30/2005 23:00)
Reported: 10/3/2005 8:26:58 AM 08:26
Posted: 10/11/2005
Location: Orland Hills, IL
Shape: Light
Duration: 15:00 min.
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
My wife and I both watched 3 red lights to the east of our home for about 15:00 min.

They didn't do much just slowly got closer to each other. We both saw the same thing about a year ago not much happened then either.

Both times the lights on each craft were single, red and constant (not blinking) nor were there any other lights paired with them as you usually see with aircraft.

There was no sound of an engine or prop. There are a number of flight patterns for the airports having both Midway and Ohare in Chicago but these lights where not consistant with any aircraft nor did they move within any of the regual flight patterns for the area. Weather was clear.

Observation was from a deck facing east off the back of the house while taking the dog out.

(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))
