Location of Sighting: Grantfork, Illinois
Date of Sighting: November 2, 2015
Time of Sighting: 3:12 AM CST
Description: I saw this bright white unusual light figured was just star, but on left of the white one was a red star so I thought. And above the white one was like a white/red 1 changing colors so figured was just an airplane, but it would have been gone by time I was moving towards Grantfork from marine. I watched it for 5 minutes. After I got closer to Grantfork I could see an outline was like a weird shaped triangle outline and you could see it in how slow it was going and I snap chatted it my friend. I didn’t save it. I was freaking out. I sped up as the UFO I saw gained speed and I started to lose sight. I went through the middle of town on pokey road heading towards Pocahontas. That is when I could barely see the lights. I lost the outline of it about a minute before then. So I started to slow down because I had no chance to get a better video. I started to turn around and drive. I looked back to check and I saw this small like V shaped, but wider spread of V thing coming had a bright light at the middle where the bottom of the V would be. I sped up because I was in country and wanted to get into town. Looking back I saw the V low with a bright white light at bottom getting close. I came into town down about 85 and slammed on the brakes and got out of car to take a video and it was gone. I freaked out, went home. wish I would have saved the video. I wasn’t thinking and haven’t sketched anything yet. I try to rationalize what it probably was, but I know what I saw. I am just wondering if any one around here saw anything else either or saw something like it before.

I saw something very similar this morning a 3 AM in Puyallup, WA. I get up early to workout in the mornings and as I was in the kitchen getting a glass of water I looked out the kitchen window (usually out of habit, it’s just something I do) to see a somewhat triangular or “V” cluster of lights. Most were white lights, but there was one orange and one blue. I am not sure what I saw, but it was definitely not a plane or a cluster of stars. (It was too close for that.)
Thanks for sharing your sighting. V shaped objects are frequently reported. For the most part I have not been able these reports.
