I was on my bike on my way home entering the town of Clarendon Hills when I saw way off in the distance a small
looking plane that looked like it was moving and staying stationary at the same time.
For sure it didnít look like
it was leaving the area quick enough like a normal plane. So I kept my eyes on the sky as I continued home.
I would get a break in the trees and see a plane and wonder if that was it.
I was alongside the tracks at one point
when I was looking more and saw a plane not moving fast enough wondering if that was still it and so I got off my
bike and pulled out my iPhone and started to record, but I couldnít see anything as I was recording because it was
But as I got into my driveway I was looking up some more and thatís when I saw an object moving too slowly so I ran
into the house and grabbed my camera and ran into the backyard and the thing was there off in a distance and I
started videotaping it.
It was pitch dark outside exactly 8:15 pm when I first started recording and I had to stick
my camera on zoom to help see it. I videotaped it!
Only the lights show in the videos. I stood there watching this
thing slowly fly around for about 35 minutes. Basically it looked like it was staying in about a square mile since I
was able to watch it so long.
A few times it drifted off out of sight for a minute or so, but came right back to the
area. I couldnít see the color or size or shape in the darkness, but I could tell it was small and didnít appear to have
I pictured it being rectangle shape or a little rounded since I could hardly see it. At one point it got
pretty close like two houses down from me. I felt like it saw me. It was a little lower than a helicopter.
I think it
made a really low sound that reminded me of a hot air balloon sound or plane sound, but was much more quiet. It had 4
lights on it and 3 were white and one was red.
All the lights were in the front lined up and the red light was a
above the white lights.
The lights were blinking like planes do. I was sure it saw me with how close it got. I was
thinking it was a drone. I got tired of watching it after a while and went back inside while it was still out there.
I didnít feel scared.
