UFOINFO Sighting Form Report

Location: Hillside/IL/Cook

Date: 10/14/07

Time: 6:50-7:00 p.m.

Number of witnesses: 7

Number of objects: 2

Shape of objects: Shaped almost like the Mercedes Benz logo, only the 3 arms were thicker. Also, all of the sides came to a single point on top: similar to a pyramid.

Weather Conditions: Evening at dusk. sparsely scattered high-level clouds.

Description: Myself and six other friends were at my home in Hillside, IL. We were just having a little get together and a night of drinking. Although, AT THE TIME OF THE SIGHTING we had only consumed 1-2 drinks per person. I, myself, only had one drink so far that night. I went outside to attend to the barbecue when I looked up to view the different colors that were in the sky that evening, I saw two strange objects in the sky (they were rotating at a fast rate at the time so they actually appeared circular.) The two objects were spinning and moving in short bursts in a way so that their flight paths intersected each other, but they would alternate or "take turn" moving. To describe it better, if the crafts HYPOTHETICALLY left visible trails, the pattern that the 2 objects made together would look like a long string of the letter x's, so it would look something similar to "xxxxxxxx" forming perfect squares between the two x's (if that makes any sense to you). The objects were moving directly East at this point, toward downtown Chicago, which is around 15 miles from my house. At 6:53 I called my 6 guests out to view what I was seeing. I knew that what I was seeing was definitely there but I couldn't believe my eyes. Around 6:55, five minutes after I first spotted the objects, they stopped rotating (thus how I was able to recognize that they weren't circular in shape, but actually the shape listed above). They hovered perfectly still for around five minutes. The way they hovered perfectly still seemed to defy the laws of gravity and physics. The objects were now at an approximately 75 degree angle to me, almost directly above me. They then began to rotate and move again around 6:57pm (approx. two minutes after stopping), but were now moving in the same patterns, but only Southwesterly. The objects were now moving at a faster pace, with a shorter amount of time between each burst, and in longer strides. They slowly began to disappear from sight and by 7:00pm were completely out of sight.

TV/Radio Not reported on TV or radio. Your website is the first time I've given an account of what I saw that night.
