I was looking almost due east at something that purely baffled me...
Norwalk, Illinois - 09-05-15
It was 1:30 am, and I was watching television unwinding from an evening job. Warm clear night, and I had my porch door open, where I occasionally step outside.
Got tired of channel surfing so got up to poke my head out the back door. Walked to the end of the deck and watched a white light appear, first thinking it was an incoming jet.
There's a nearby airport but flights usually don't arrive this time of the morning. The light grew larger and brighter but remained in its location.
I thought maybe it was the moon popping through a slight cloud. No, it would've been far southwest that time of the morning. I was looking almost due east at something that purely baffled me.
I grabbed my phone and took a pic, then a short video clip.
There was no noise from the object, I was far enough away to have heard anything. After getting the video clip with my phone I watched it for another few seconds, and then the thing was gone.
It disappeared as though a light switch had been shut off. I think I walked in and out of my house ten times looking at the sky and trying to wrap my mind around what I had just witnessed.
No, it wasn't the planet Venus.
Many people have seen the video I have, and nobody has an answer, not even the doctor who lives next door to me. The pixilation on my phone camera is fairly decent, but after watching this clip repeatedly I remain bewildered.
Close up it looked to turn yellow-orange with what might be a heat signature.
