UFO's in Greenfield, IL

We see these objects almost every night. They appear to be lights at quite a distance. I have described them as looking like a "ferris wheel" in the sky. Many different colors. They make no sound and move at incredible speeds when they move. They also sit in the same area for quite a long time. I have many, many pictures that I would like to submit. They stay visible for anywhere from 30 minutes to over an hour sometimes. We saw 2 on May 1, 2009. They were together, usually we might see one in one particular area and another in another area of the sky. These were together through the entire sighting. They stayed visible for approximately 30 minutes or more then it was like they just turn their lights off and we didn't see them again that night.

((NUFORC Note: We have looked at the photos, and the objects of interest are simply small smears of light. We allow for the possibility that the witness has photographed stars, or other celestial bodies, using a camera that was handheld. PD))
