Reported: 10/5/2005 12:20:46 PM 12:20
Posted: 10/11/2005
Location: Oak Forest, IL
Shape: Changing
Duration: 5-10 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
3 red lights altered formations and each indiviadual light disappeared at different times

A friend and I spootes three red lights in a somewhat horizontal line around 1:00 a.m. The light then formed a triangle. I was able to tell that each light was made up by three smaller lights in a triangle. The three main lights remained in the triangle until the top light disappeared. The remaining two light moved closer to each other, and then farther away from each for a few minutes. AS they were altering their positions, they did not move in straight lines. It looked as if the were hovering, as opposed to how an airplane moves(straight line). The lights then appeared to signal each other by flickering. One light would dim while the other got extremely bright, and then likewise. After this action, the light on the right disappeared. The remaining single light hovered around the sky for a while, and then also disappeared.

(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))
