Bolingbrook -- On May 17, 2001, a dark gray sphere hovered in one place
the sky for a while. At 6:00 PM, as it hovered it kind of wobbled,
up higher in the sky and took off really fast in the direction of Lake
Palatine -- At 2:17 PM on Saturday, May 19, 2001, two people saw a cigar
shaped metallic object extremely high above the scattered clouds.

It flew directly over us and gleamed in the sun as it was moving at a
high speed. The shape was an elongated oval. From our perspective

this object for approximately two or three minutes.
Alsip -- I was walking home from my aunts looking at the stars on May
19,2001, and saw some unusual light in the sky. It looked like thunder
lightning but there were too many different colors. I've seen some
stuff in the past but nothing like this. After the lights stopped,
shape just flew off before I could make out the shape. I believe
government is hiding this from us because they probably think humans and
aliens wont get along. I believe that ever since the Roswell crash
today are trying to find that one ship. If the government is covering

Buffalo Grove -- The witness reports that she observed a Flying Triangle
the north on Wednesday, May 30, 2001. She was standing on her porch
PM, and noticed the UFO with a light display of three distinct circular
shaped lights at the rear. It was a soundless vehicle. The
object flew west
and disappeared at a very high speed into the horizon. The object
at a low altitude--less than the planes that are descending to land at
Airport. The craft moved northwest at an estimated height of less
10,000 feet, at more than ten times the speed of an average airplane.
witness reports this was her first sighting! Thanks to Peter Davenport
