June 1980

I spent 9 years in Lake Forest Ill and had just been re-located to California. We came back to say goodbye, it was the day my grandmother passed away. It was approx 8:30 and I had to get out of the house and take a short walk. I headed down King Muir Rd towards to the corner of Deer Path Road, and I heard an extremely loud, two very low frequencies coming from a triangle shape, it was moving very slowly, I watched it for five or so minutes when it changed direction and just vanished.

The Lake Forest is not the only one however, When I was five years old, I was headed home from Springfeild, Il with my grandfather and it was totally dark out. All of a sudden my grandfather spotted an object hovering above a field and he pulled over to the side of the road. There was a brightly lit with multiple colored lights, it looked like an enormous barrel (10X size) with both ends bulging out. His car died and he could not start it, until the object suddenly shot upwards and vanished. There was no noise from what I remember.
