Location of Sighting: Gurnee, Illinois
Date of Sighting: October 20, 2015
Time of Sighting: 6:30 AM CDT
Description: Hello this morning at around 6:30 I saw the exact same thing. I saw a bluish green light streaking above our school as I was putting out recycle. A parent and his child were pulling up to the school to drop off for babysitting services and they saw it too. The person I was standing with did not see it. It was only about 40 to 50 off of the ground or about 10 to 15 feet above the roof of the school maybe even less. (I am not sure how tall the roof of school is.)
It was crazy, it looked like it had an oblong shape. It was fluorescent. I have seen similar before in Winthrop Harbor IL about five years back or so. While driving home with my granddaughter we saw a small blue glowing lighted ball zooming around about 20 feet off of the ground. It was odd, but neither of us responded to it except to say to each other: What is that? Then we kept driving.
Also about 2009, while looking up in the sky walking out my back door my husband and I saw a bright star in the West sky go completely dark like someone shut the light off and went to bed. it was before summer so it was after dark maybe 8:30 to 9 PM. This happened in Pleasant Prairie, WI.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
