Full Description & Details

DESCRIPTION OF OBSERVERS- My mother was the first person to notice the 3 lights in the sky at approximately 7:50pm (CST). She was walking out some friends of the family and her sister to their cars and all 5 of those people noticed the lights. My mother then called myself, my Father, and my sister out to the driveway to see the lights. We then went and got our next door neighbors to come and see the unknown lights as well. Since I work at a 24-hour news station here in Chicago I called the station to try and let the news director know what we were seeing, however, they were unreachable. I then called two friends in two different parts of our town (yet still within Orland Park) to look up and see the lights, they too were able to see the lights. One of my mother’s friends (who had been walking to her car) she called her husband who was in Tinely Park (an adjacent town to Orland) and he too confirmed that he saw the lights. One of my friends in Orland that I called also saw the lights from his driveway with a family that was out "trick or treating". The ages of the witness' varied in age from 13 at the youngest to mid-60's.

DESCRIPTION OF OBJECTS- there were three distinct Bright Red lights in the sky. These lights were similar to the red lights that are on top of Radio and Cell phone towers. However these objects were moving, incredibly slowly. They maintained a steady pace similar in speed to a dirigible. The three lights were too far apart and too high to be planes, dirigibles, or balloons. Since we live in an area that has a high air traffic concentration (the O’Hare and midway flight path triangle) we are used to seeing lights in the sky, several commercial planes flew below the lights on there way to and from the airports. There was full cloud cover at a very high altitude, so we were unable to see any stars, however these three lights remained totally below the clouds during the entire 20 minutes.

DESCRIPTION OF WHAT OBJECTS DID- the three lights came in from the southwest when we first noticed, them moved toward the north (towards us), the three lights proceeded south east then after several of the people in our group had begun calling friends and family on our cell phones, the lights were too far away to be seen by 8:17pm. The lights maintained an obtuse scalene triangle formation during the twenty minutes. The distances between the objects remained relatively constant throughout the sighting. The lights did not change speed at all during the sighting, nor did they move in directions that would be impossible for conventional aircraft. Although the near "hovering" speed and the high altitude maintained by the objects completely rules out any helicopters. There was no noise heard from the objects.

DESCRIPTION OF BACKGROUNDS OF OBSERVERS- I'm a 23-year-old college Graduate and I work at local 24-hour news station covering the Chicagoland Area. My father is a 53-year-old college graduate and has worked in sales for over 35 years. My mother is a 53-year-old college graduate and homemaker. My sister is a 15-year-old high school sophomore. My neighbor’s are in their mid-60's and both hold masters degree's in education, one is a college professor at a nearby college, the other teaches elementary school. Our friends of family included our former neighbor (ties in her 40's and a business owner), her husband in his 40's and is a business owner as well (whom she called on the cell phone), and her daughter (13 in junior high school). The two friends that I called on the phone are both 24 and are currently enrolled in college. My mothers sister is in her 50's, holds a college degree and is a nurse at a local hospital.

Witness Background

23 year old College Graduate and my family, neighbors, and friends all witnessed this event. Individuals not with out group at our home were called via Cell phone to confirm the objects. Those people called on their cell phones were up to 15 miles away

Full Description & Details



I stepped off the My uncles porch heading for my car and I looked up into the sky. A star caught my immediate attention. At first I thought it was the north star, because it was so large. But its size was double or tripple that of a normal star. Kind of like mars when it visited close to earth recently, but bigger. soon after I looked at the star it suddenly began to move. Not in a diagnal direction, or any direction at all but strait back. It began to shrink as it moved away, untill i could only see a dot, and then nothing. It reminded me of startrek when the spaceship went into hyperdrive and vanished into a dot.

I believe I seen a ufo, dont know what else would suddenly fall away from earth. But who will ever know. I also seen a shooting star right after that. It streaked diagnlal acoss the sky, a fairly large one. Both lights were defianatly not alike, it was a very interesting expeariance.

Full Description & Details

I was at a gathering and we were outside and I noticed an orange glow in the sky. At first I considered it was a jet and was moving away from me hence the orange glow from the engines. I turned to my friends and pointed it out and asked if it was moving toward or away from us. We looked at it for a while and noticed it was geting bigger. It was about the size of a half dollar if you were to hold it up into the air. After a couple minutes of it getting bigger we all went inside and watched it from the living room window. It disapeared very quickly so we really didn't think anything else of it. After another minute or two we heard a tremendous roar and the house started to shake like from the sound of thunder. It sounded too loud to be a jet and if it were then it would have had to have flown directly over the house. We rushed outside and saw the orange glow shoot towards the west and straight up into the sky and disapear.

Color of Object(s):

gray or dark silver metallic

Full Description & Details

I have actually seen this several times before and this is the first time I am reporting it. Each time I have seen it the experience is remarkably similar to the other sightings.

1. More than one (3-5) objects streak across the sky in a matter of 4-5 seconds from the time I spot them until they are out of sight.

2. Often they are in a triangular formation like Geese flying south for the winter.

3. I am amazed at the speed at which they traverse the sky.

4. I conclude the objects must be at very low altitude due to the incredible speed yet I hear NO NOISE!

5. I can't be sure of the shape but he object are not large (the size of a pencil eraser at arm;s length).

6. The object appear to have no lights but I can see them as a contrast in the night sky. My guess for color would be gray or dark metallic.

Being near Denver and several Military/Air Force bases, I can't help but wonder if these are experimental , military airfcraft with on-board active noise cancellation technologies.

Full Description & Details

Apr. 22, 1966 Bagley (Minnesota). Several people were said to have

1530 observed an object fly at low altitude and land outside

Bagley. Four dwarfs seemed to make repairs, then the

craft flew away. (FS Mar., 67)

1966 - An orange sphere was seen flying over the coast at Figueira da Foz, Portugal at nine p.m. local time. At 3:30 p.m. CDT--within an hour of the sighting in Portugal--a flying saucer flew down the main street of Bagley, Minnesota at a low altitude, jumped over a school bus and landed on the outskirts of town. Four beings of small stature got out of the UFO, seemed to do some work on it, got back in and then took off. (Sources: Vicente-Juan Ballester Olmos case investigation files; David F. Webb & Ted Bloecher, HUMCAT: Catalogue of Humanoid Reports, case 1966-18; Ray Palmer, Flying Saucers, March 1967, p. 24; Albert S. Rosales, Humanoid Contact Database 1

I remember the bus and I am currently having my mother living in Bagley check the paper for that date.
