As I was driving down this small backroad (one lane each way,few street lights) I noticed night sky was rather clear and suddenly two objects stuck
out to me. I at first thought they were stars for just a moment, before noticing how bright these objects were (and how they moved), stuck out more
than anything else in the sky. I mean these things were bright compared to how far way and how high I was perceiving all of this, just immediately
struck me as odd.(since then i have yet to see anything as bright as these were)
There were 2. They were bright/glowing orange. I don't know if it was the distance between me and it, causing this, but they resembled an orb. The
best way to describe it, which may be bit of an oxymoron, but I told someone it resembled the brightness of standing several feet away looking upward
at a street light, just much much further and higher up, but still giving off that kind of glow.
I perceived them to be relatively high in the atmosphere, I would guess around altitude of which an airplane would fly. BUT I noticed something just
unusual about them.. Now ill try and illustrate what I saw.
When I first noticed these, there was one to my left higher up, and one to my right which was lower. (they kind of looked like they were alongside
each other just separated by distance)
O (when i preview this post it snaps what im using to illustrate to the margin,
so if you could move this O over to the middle of the sentence above)
Kind of like that, I was slightly bending my neck down to see better out my windshield. Driving very very slow at this point (throughout all of it
I noticed them to be moving away from me, yet the size or them didn't really seem to fade all that much (they weren't getting any larger either)
Now I am noticing how fast they are moving. Slightly moving in a direction towards my left. The one on the right is what is odd, it is moving higher
up towards the object on the left, FAST.
After a brief moment, the one on my right closes in on the distance, crosses over and becomes what is now the flying object on my left.
At this point they are pretty leveled with each other
O O (this one should be moved/spaced over as well to nearly halfway middle of
and after a few moments each one suddenly split apart each taking a hard left and right. The one on the left seemed to split off and head more
straight, as the one on the right split and started making somewhat of a circular motion around the area, before I could no longer see it due to my
I admit when I noticed these, I just knew it wasn't normal. I became kind of scared? I dont know if scared is the right word, a weird feeling came
over me like a slight panic (not the THC). I was totally alone on this road, no phone, and it just was not right.
Throughout all of this while they were moving the orb like structue did not change and the brightness did not fade or grow brighter, aside from the
object that flew to the left seemed to go off the in the distance rather quick.
the next day or 2 after, there is an article of a string of lights above Lake Shore Drive, which was quickly said to be sky lanterns for some
promotion. I do not live near the lake. The area I was in was Shorewood/Plainfield which is a little over an hour south of Chicago and these objects
were moving rather fast.
So thats that, hard to explain really but I just felt creeped out. I wish i had the balls to pull over and observe. If it were to happen again I think
Sorry for the long reply!
