On 05/12/2009, at approximately 0330 hours, I was traveling east on Illinois RR. 6, 3 miles west of Morris Illinois. At that time I observed what looked like a large white flood light in a tree line, 1 mile south of RR. 6. The light was moving at too great of speed and changed direction to sharply to be a vehicle or poacher. I stopped on RR.6 and watched the light for approximately 12-14 minutes. The light then stopped and split into 2 different lights, 1 the same bright white, the other a blue green color. The blue green light stayed ststionary while the white light continued traveling east in the tree line. The lights were approximately 1 half mile apart when I heard what sounded like an electrical snap. At that time the blue green light streatched from it's stationary spot to where the white light was. The whith light then stopped and the blue green light re-appeared on top of the white light. The lights then moved slowly to just above the tree line. At that time I heard the electrical sound again, and the lights streatched to the west and dissapeared.

I am not a person who beleives in this kind of stuff. I am a former Police Officer, and currently a armed nuclear officer. I thought I was initially looking at a poacher until I realized how fast the object was moving.
