Below are excerpts from a seven-minute recording of the St. Clair County police dispatcher talking to officers:

Dupo officer: 6004, this is 3923 on County (radio channel) 2.

Millstadt officer: 6004, go ahead.

Dupo officer: I'm not sure what you're seeing. It appears to be pretty high in the area. When I could first see it with binoculars, you could see it was different colors. Now it appears to be white.

Millstadt officer: Is it very large?

Dupo officer: It's hard to tell. It's pretty far off in the distance.

Millstadt officer: This object was above me about 500 feet. And it was huge.

Dupo officer: This thing appears.... it's probably 20 or 30,000. It about where planes usually are. It's not low at all.

The intriguing case of the Illinois sightings of January 5, 2000, is still being investigated and discussed today. If more information comes to light, I will include it here in this article.
