Date of Sighting: October 22, 2011
Time of Sighting: 10:06 PM CDT
Location of Sighting: Peoria, Illinois (See Map)

Description: I saw 25 to 30 orbs in the sky at 10:06 PM on the 22nd of October 2011. I am not sure of the direction, but I am thinking kind of southeast of where I was standing. I was at a lake resort pretty much in the middle of Peoria when I saw them. They were zigzagging beside each other and sparkling with a gold radiance while flashing red, orange, pink and white while they appeared to just float away into space! I have attached the picture I took with my camera phone. I have also zoomed in and attached some close up images that I took of the main image itself using my computer.

Note: Many have witnessed these lights on October 22, 2011 in the Peoria area and surrounding areas.

Comments Received October 26, 2011: My wife and I saw the same sighting reported on this site for Peoria, Illinois October 22nd 2011. We also saw other cars pulled over observing the same thing. (We were at mile marker 85 on highway 74.) I did take video footage with a professional grade video camera on maximum zoom. We saw a trailing fleet following behind the first bunch in a group that was between 2 and 3 dozen moving together. This picture above from someone else's entry of the same event was exactly what I observed, but the video footage we got was of a trailing group continually coming over the highway. When I got home and watched the videos we were stunned to see that the shape of each one was distinctly clearly obvious a hexagon i.e. it had 6 sides. As we put the video on pause at each UFO, believe it or not you can see the impression like a hologram like a typical alien looking face. This video zoom is extremely clear. I personally have never watched or followed or read, or held any interest in UFOs. but I cannot deny what I've seen and what I've recorded on video. (UFOS Northwest note: - We are trying to acquire this footage. Updates will be posted.)

Update October 29, 2011: We have received several comments from a group claiming responsibility for the lights. This group was having a birthday party and launched several Chinese Lanterns. Although there is no proof that the lanterns were launched the sighting reports fit the behavior of Chinese Lanterns.
