Sighting Reports 2008

Man Sees 4 Unknown Objects Flying Below Small Airplane

Date of Sighting: September 26, 2008
Time of Sighting: 7 PM CDT
Date Sighting Reported: September 26, 2008
Duration of Sighting: Not Known
Location of Sighting: Harvard, Illinois (About 80 MI NW of Chicago)
Latitude: 42.42 Degrees North
Longitude: 88.62 Degrees West
Number of Witnesses: One
Weather: Skies Were Clear. Visibility Was 10 Miles. Winds Were From the East at 7 MPH.

Description: I was driving home at dusk. The sky was still light enough to see clearly. I saw a small plane the size of a Cessna. Below the plane were four, what I could best describe as "comet looking things." In fact they were round with a comet like tail. They looked like they were falling from the plane and I thought an engine blew up. The plane made no evasive maneuvers or anything and the four objects leveled out at a certain point and stayed there with the tails no longer visible. I then thought maybe that the object were flares. At this point some trees obstructed my view, but when I caught sight of one of the objects again it was moving rapidly North. It had a tail like a comet again and was moving like a fish in water as it flew North. I never saw a flare do that before!

Comments: Whew! I don't think that comets follow airplanes nor do flares. What could this be? I have written to the witness to learn more details about his sighting. Any new information will be posted.
