Unknown Objects Videotaped over Illinois
UFOs over Illinois

Illinois - 07-04-11

We were watching the neighborhood fireworks when I looked over to the southeast and saw one or two BRIGHT (brighter than any plane or helicopter) lights coming over the horizon.

I told my dad who was also outside "look, UFOs!"

He walked over to take a look and we both realized that one, they WERE UFOs, and two, we could see more approaching.

I started filming (I'll attach the video) and you can see the rest of what happens there.

We have concluded that these craft were not likely to be Chinese Lanterns because of their overwhelming brightness while at a great distance and altitude.

Also their ability to stay in formation with each other and all go on and off at the same time.

There were also HUNDREDS of spectators that saw a triangular formation in a town nearby (about 14 miles away).
