I thought I’d ask for help here since I’m no research whiz and I’ve had success in the past with helpful members. I have tried myself with no results.

On a winter night in the mid-90’s I received an irate call from a close friend [and neighbor]. I was annoyed at his tone so I let the answering machine handle it. He was ranting about something in the sky and lights on the snow. I didn’t think much of it, but eventually decided to call him back for details. What he told me was that there was something hovering above the clouds, which were extremely low that night [in the hundreds of feet range]. It was illuminated with multicolored lights which were reflecting off the snow. In retrospect I should have picked up when he called, as I missed the whole thing.

I still didn’t give it much thought until, over the next few days, I started hearing of other witnesses, some on the other side of town who had an even better view from a distance. Pretty sure there was some mention of it in one of the local papers or on the news, but can’t for the life of me find anything. Apparently the “object” was hovering over an old house, which turned out to belong to the music teacher of the brother of the guy who called me about it in the first place. Details weren’t visible through the clouds directly beneath the object, but on the other side of town people could see above the low cloud/fog cover.

This happened on a winter evening around ‘94 or ‘95 – sorry, but I don’t know exactly which year [had to have been between ’92 and ‘96 at the most], but it was winter. The location was Wheeling, Illinois above Aptakisic Rd. and McHenry Rd..

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I myself saw one hovering over a neighbors house silently one winter evening in Buffalo Grove, IL. Ironically some years later I was talking to a friend who also saw the same UFO and identified which house it had hovered over - being that I had never said which house it was. They do exist. The Bible even describes them. See King James Bible.

Buffalo Grove — Three residents of the 1100 block of Parker Lane told police they saw UFOs travel across the northern sky last Wednesday evening. A 49-year-old mother, her 20-year-old daughter and their 21-year-old next-door neighbor said they saw six silent objects move from east to west at about 70 m.p.h., they told authorities. The mystery craft, which flew at an estimated altitude of 3,000 feet, were described as having an oval center, with smaller ellipsoidal protrusions on each side. The objects were encircled by red, blue and other bright lights, many of which pulsated, they said. Neither the Glenview Naval Air Base nor the Federal Aviation Administration near O'Hare International Airport received any reports of UFO sightings.

I say call your local paper and see if you can browse the microphish?

That's gotta be it! Within a mile of where my buddy said he saw it, and in the correct direction from where we lived, 2 miles southeast of there.

Thank you so much.
