Man Sees Bright Light "Turn on Dime" & Reverse Direction

Date of Sighting: May 14, 2008
Time of Sighting: Between 11:30 PM and Midnight
Date Sighting Report: May 22, 2008
Duration of Sighting: 2 to 3 Minutes
Location of Sighting: Glendale Heights, Illinois (About 30 MI W. of Chicago)
Latitude: 41.91 Degrees North
Longitude: 88.1 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: Two
Number of Witnesses Interviewed: One
Weather: Clear Skies. Light Winds. Good Visibility. (Witness Observation)

Description: The witness called and said that he had just returned from work and noticed a bright whitish-blue light in the sky. The light was flashing. Suddenly the light "turned on a dime," reversed direction and sped off in the other direction. No sound was heard. The light changed color to yellow when it turned. The witness lost sight of the light when it moved behind a building. The light was about 1/15 the size of a full moon and larger than any stars.

Comments: The witness has described something in the sky that is quite unusual. He said that on many occasions he has seen regular aircraft and could always hear a sound. The abrupt turns, lack of sound, and unusual light emulation prompted him to file a report. Given available data I cannot identify this sighting.
