Date of Sighting: May 10, 2009
Time of Sighting: 9 or 10 PM CDT (Exact Time Unknown)
Location of Sighting: Highland, Illinois (About 20 MI East of Downtown St. Louis)


From Person Who Reported Sighting (Not a Witness to Sighting): I did not personally see the UFO, but pictures and reports were on our local news station KTVI Channel 2 in St. Louis, MO. on Sunday night May 11, 2009. Blogs were also on the net concerning this sighting. I wish you would investigate as this area frequently has ufo sightings.

KTVI Report: Some residents in Illinois may have spotted a strange sight in the sky above Highland late Sunday night. Fox 2 received a few emails about some odd-looking lights. Some are going so far as to call the lights a UFO. FOX 2 made several attempts to confirm with the state and city police, but officials say they have not heard anything about the lights.

What do you think? Head on over to the blogs section and discuss what you think the lights are!

KTVI Blog (Witness Report): I cannot seem to find the blog about the strange lights so I started another. Saturday night my 12 year old son was asleep in his room. His dad heard him making noises like he had a bad dream. His dad went in there and asked: "what's wrong?" His answer was "there is a blue hovering light above me." He is in his room not outside, but woke up to a blue light and was freaking out. His father assumed that he had played his xbox 360 so much that the blue hovering disc above him was a dream of a disc. I assumed it was a police car that drove by with lights on and the only light that caught his room was the blue light, but then I be danged if I don't wake up this morning and see this on the news so now I am a little freaked out. I seriously have never believed in life other than here on earth and my husband is the same way. When I called him at work this morning and told him what I saw on the news his words were: "YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME."  Anyone else see these? I am in Granite City and my son saw this Saturday not Sunday.

Note: The photo sent to KTVI TV is interesting, but it is unknown what the witness saw. Apparently several reports of the lights were received by KTVI TV. The blog mentioned on the news report could not be found (as stated by the above witness). The witness report above apparently occurred late Saturday night (May 9) and not Sunday (May 10) when the other reports were received. This sighting occurred in Granite City, Illinois which is about 10 miles northeast of downtown St. Louis.
