landing lights. ohare is one of the busiest airports in the country, and on any given night you are going to see a multitude of landing lights within
about 20 miles of the aiport. aircraft flying within terminal areas (such as ohare) are required to have their landing lights on. when they are the
brightest, they are pointed at you (hence very little perceived motion). when they fade out, they are turning away from you. no big mystery here.
you can take the same videos around dulles, atlanta, lax, etc, etc. if you live near a major airport, take notice on a clear night. sometimes you
can see them from over sixty miles out.
