Date of Sighting: September 17, 2011
Time of Sighting: 8:45 PM CDT
Location of Sighting: Lake in the Hills, Illinois (See Map)

Description: I witnessed for 10 minutes large orange orb lights in Northwest Illinois. The first ones started out in a triangle formation, then single orbs. They appeared to be flying by pretty fast. I heard no noise and there were no trails. There were lightning type flashes in the beginning.

The Photo was taken at 8:45 pm, September 17, 2011 in the Lake in the Hills, IL. The weather was clear and the temperature was 60 degrees. After the 15 minutes of these orange orbs flying in a linear direction, there were clouds that appeared streaky in the same direction of orb flight. I also took a video.

The circumstances of my sighting are very similar to that mentioned above. At about 11:00 PM there was a bright white lightning-like flash to the southeast followed several seconds later by a very loud & "non-thunder like" boom. A few moments later I began to see several orange/red balls of light coming from the direction of the white flash and moving to the northeast. First I saw one, then a second following the same path. Then a third appeared moving slightly to the south of the first two, but still moving to the northeast. A fourth appeared following the path of the first two. Then one last light appeared again slightly to the south of the others. All of the lights were well distanced from the one preceding it, and moved in a fairly slow and relatively constant motion. This all took place at the approximate time that the UARS satellite was supposed to be entering the atmosphere on it's crash descent. I thought at the time I had gotten to see the predicted fireball and debris, but now Nasa says it probably fell into the Pacific thousands of miles from me here in Michigan.
