Date of Sighting: September 13, 2009
Time of Sighting: 10:15 PM CDT
Location of Sighting: Chicago, Illinois

Description: My wife and I were standing on our third floor balcony on Sunday September 13th 2009. Around 10:15 PM we first saw what looked like a plane on fire rise up from the south and west of us and continue north. The color was orange (unlike a normal plane) which led me to initially believe it was a passenger jet on fire coming in for an emergency landing. Shortly afterward three more of these lights rose from the same location flying in formation. There was no noise associated with them like a normal passenger jet or a fighter plane. I believe the time that they were in the air, and their steady climb followed by horizontal movement north, would eliminate any type of fireworks or flares. The distance was hard to gauge, but I would guess the objects were somewhere between one to two miles away. I was in such shock that I did not grab my video camera, but my wife did manage to capture this photo from her cell phone.

Note: Given the description and the photo I don't have an explanation for this sighting. The photo was taken with a low resolution camera so little further analysis can be performed on the photo.
