Description: My daughter and I were coming home from her ball game in Murphysboro, IL. We were traveling on Rt. 149 coming into De Soto when I saw an object that was brighter than an airplane. Joking with my daughter, I said, "Hey, look! There's a UFO". We watched it and as we got closer realized it was not moving. It was just hovering above the tree line and made no noise. It started to move so we turned down a back road to follow it then it disappeared. We kept looking but could not see it and decided to continue home. As we turned back onto RT. 149 and came to the 4 way stop, my daughter saw it once again hovering over a building on the corner so we pulled in the building's parking lot and watched it. It hovered for about 15-30 seconds giving my daughter enough time to get a picture on my cell phone. It was close enough to see that it was triangular (with round points) with white lights on the tips and a large, bright, red light. (Of course, cell phone cameras aren't the best and the only thing that turned out was the red light and the roof tops.) This object then left fast. I never believed in UFOs until now. Her father is the one who found your site. After reading it, I decided to inform you of what we saw. I have decided that I do not care if nobody believes us or thinks we are crazy. We know what we saw and it was not an airplane or anything else.
