Location of Sighting: Carpentersville, Illinois
Date of Sighting: August 17, 2017
Time of Sighting: 9:30 PM CDT
Description: My sightings was in Carpentersville, Illinois, 08/17/2017 at approximately 9:30 PM. While looking at the big dipper I saw a bright light suddenly appear and just as suddenly fade away. The light appeared again in a different spot and again fade away. I say fade away because it didn’t suddenly go out. It just faded away. The light reappeared many times over the course of about 10 minutes. It seemed to just zigzag with a few seconds between appearances. I have been in the aviation industry since 1966 and I know it wasn’t an aircraft. It also wasn’t a meteor or a satellite. It was about the size of a star.
Note: The said that his sighting was similar to the sighting of a zigzagging star-like object over Riviera Maya, Mexico on April 5, 2016.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
