Someone out there…help me out on this one. I saw my first UFO as reported on June 17th, 2008.

Since that night, I spend about 1 hour per night watching the skies…hoping to see it again.

Since June 17th…I swear I have seen white orbs between 9:25 pm and 10:35 pm Chicago time…every single night except one night. In fact, I stopped reporting them as they became regular…and I am speaking to someone in a few days from MUFON. Now…people have told me to get a photo or a video of it…and I have, and will download some of them as soon as I get access to a DVD drive…or have one installed. But…tonight…I filmed a orange/white orb heading due north…pretty high altitude…and as reported…before…it stopped…and hovered. But this time…it turned off the lights on the craft and it hovered somewhere. I tried to re-acquire the orb for about 20 minutes with my video camera…but I lost it up there in the night sky soon after it stopped. I kept looking. Suddenly…just north of where I thought it stopped….The orb lit up the entire sky around it. It was by far the biggest and brightest light that I have ever SEEN in my entire life. It looked like lightening in a huge circular sphere. It was lower than when I first filmed it too. I swear I pulled up my camera…and it immediately shut off on me!! It took off slowly for one second…and the 2nd second…it took off faster than anything I have ever seen fly before!! It streaked away…with a huge white trailer. It is so frustrating…because even if I was totally ready…and the camera stayed on…I would have missed it…it was simply too fast…It was gone in a blink of an eye. It makes me almost skeptical of other videos. Who the hell can catch these things on film so easily? I mean…who has a video camera on their shoulder all night long, like I just did for the last 4 days? Now..I have said before…and now I am reporting again….watch the skies between 9:25 pm…and 10:35 pm…Chicago time…just east…and just south of the big dipper…and get on this site…and report it. I have seen them start up from a dead stop…three times now…and it is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. It is not a shooting star or meteor for sure. It is a craft…it hovered…shut the lights off…and s! tarted u p again…and took off. Something is controlling it…and I just don’t think it is the TR3-B…unless it lights up like a lightening bolt. I will take a polygraph and provide my video evidence soon. 2 or 3 fly by without stopping per night…sometimes they are real high…and sometimes…they are lower…and someone out there will see them for sure. Report what you see to this site…no one believes me…and it is so frustrating…people think I am nuts….but it is the truth. I DID catch the orb on film before the light went off…We will see how it looks later…I had the camera zoomed all the way in too. You can see it moving for sure. Even if a skeptic was here tonight…and saw what I saw…he/she would believe from tonight on. Now…I finally know how other people who have witnessed these UFO’s feel…you cannot sleep…you sit up wondering what the hell it was. I just don’t think it was human. Now…I am NOT a trained observer…but growing up five minutes from O’Hare Airport…I know what a plane looks like. I lived in Arizona for 8 years, and I know full well what a meteor looks like. This was neither…it was the most unbelievable thing I have ever seen. I would say that at the speed it was traveling…it go from Park Ridge, IL to Milwaukee in only a few minutes. If you are in the midwest...check the skies…for one hour...and you will see something for sure. This could be something different than anything else before because it is CONSISTENTLY happening.
