Sighting Reports 2008

Motorist Has Daytime Sighting of Airborne "Chevron" Shaped Object

Date of Sighting: August 2, 2008
Time of Sighting: 4:15 PM CDT
Date Sighting Reported: August 4, 2008
Duration of Sighting: About Two Minutes
Location of Sighting: Eastbound on Higgins Road in Elk Grove, Illinois (Suburb About 4.5 Miles NW of O'Hare Airport)
Latitude: 42.03 Degrees North
Longitude: 87.98 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: A Few Clouds Were Observed at 4,000 Feet. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the East-Northeast at 13 MPH.

Description: I was driving eastbound on Higgins Road when I saw a chevron ("V" or triangular) shaped metallic object in the sky over the forest preserve. At first I thought it was an airplane, but then I realized it was flying too low to the ground and it was performing maneuvers too complicated for an airplane. It stayed the same speed as my car and followed it for about a quarter of a mile before speeding off and disappearing. I was able to observe it for about two minutes.

Comments: This sighting is significant considering that it occurred during the daytime and the witness saw it for two minutes. The fact that the object excecuted complicated maneuvers also adds weight to the argument that the object may be unidentified.
