Location of Sighting: burr ridge IL

Further Description of Sighting: I saw about 20 of the orange spheres, there looked to be a flame with a lighter color orange inside the circle. No flickering. they were evenly spaced out,one after the other,(30 seconds or so after the other) they flew pretty low, but far too fast to be any sort of balloon. There was no sound of an engine. Appeared to be ascending and all moving in the same direction.

Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA; May 19, 2012

Name: Ryan Giles

Date of Sighting: May 19th, 2012 @ approx 11 :30 pm

Location of Sighting: Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA, 60014

Shape(s) of UFO(s): Orb

Size(s) of UFO(s): It was similar in size to surrounding stars, so very large I would assume.

Color(s) of UFO(s): White

Number of UFO(s): 3

Distance of UFO(s) in sky: All were individual orbs 2 flying by near Virgo and 1 by the Little Dipper

Direction of Travel for UFO(s): All 3 were going Northwest

Other Known Object(s) (For possible reference, or contrast): The stars in the Big Dipper were the exact size. Earlier in the night there was alot of planes out (i live an hour away from ohare) & their speed and altitude of them were not even remotely close to the UFO’s. Later in the night i also witnessed a shooting star which lasted all of 2 seconds and had a white straking tail which these UFO’s did not.

Further Description of Sighting: I was sitting outside with my Dad having a drink and sky watching. For an hour or so the only moving things in the sky were outgoing and incoming airplane traffic. Then at around 11:15 i pointed out a bright white orb in the sky traveling Northwest. Instantly we both knew it was not a star or plane because of how fast it was moving and the orb did not flicker, flash, or have any airplane details like red or blue lights. My father and I both had our eyes clearly on the orb, and followed it for about a minute until it got close the Little Dipper constellation then it disappeared. Both my father and I saw this disappear at the same exact time. We started to discuss what it could have been ( my dad was not a big believer, until now) and we came up with 3 possible explanations: either it was a sattelite, a NEO, (near earth object or meteor) or it was some sort of UFO. My only question about the satellite explination is I was under the impression that satellites usually travel in orbit with the earth and this orb was going against it. This orb also didn’t fly in a complete straight line it seemed to manuever (slightly but visible) to the left when it got near the handle of the Little Dipper.

At midnight my dad went to bed but I stayed out for more sky watching. Around 12:30 on Sunday morning, I glanced towards LEO when I saw the same exact orb traveling in the same direction, north-northwest. This time I was determined to not lose sight of this orb. The orb was the same size and color and seemed to be just as high and moving just as fast as the first one. The only difference’s was the first orb was near the Little Dipper (more in the east sky) and this one was near Leo (in the western sky) and this orb didn’t disappear as fast, i estimate I had 100% visibility of it for close to 3 minutes. Again this one eventually just disappeared when it got closer to the constellation of Virgo. My mind was racing with possibilities and honestly I thought these had to be satellites because even though I know there is extra-terrestrial life in space, seeing 2 UFO’s in one night has to be pretty uncommon.

Then came the 3rd one. Yes, a third. This was an exact replica of number 2, same spot, size, speed, direction. Everything was exactly the same except it only lasted about 1 minute before disappearing. This could have been because i didn’t see it as early as I did the 2nd, i don’t know. I welcome any questions, comments,answers, and even rebuttles on this. I will be posting more occurences as they happen. I also now permanetly have my video camera plugged in and charging outside, where I sit when skywatching because I am going to get this on video when it happens, and it will, again.
