yup, aliens fly millions of light years to get here, but they need lights to be able to see where they are going??? really.....really?
also, we are only able to film them with phones or betamax tapes!
they looked like planes to me, and I've watched airport landings before. When they start zooming away and then back, and then landing for a decent camera, that's when I will get excited.

Hate to say it but these look like chinese lanterns to me.
The only video that stands out in challenge to this theory is the last one in the OP, in which we can see the lights moving more or less horizontally. Chinese lanterns go upward and with the wind, like balloons, so the only way they could move like that would be if there was a fairly strong wind up there.
But this is Chicago, after all. There's always a strong wind blowing somewhere. And all of the other videos seem to add credence to the lanterns theory. Anyway that's my opinion currently.
Good find though, and thanks for collecting the different videos!
