Hi, my name is (name removed). I was wondering if you had any reports of anything over Midwest Illinois last night May 28 2008. I received a call from a friend in Charleston, saying he was seeing some weird lights in the sky. When I looked for myself I also saw these strange lights here in Springfield and someone in Rantoul also observed this also! It was a series of flashing lights northeast of Springfield. The lights first looked sort of like a meteor shower at first and then separated to just two flashing lights that were spaced out and weren't moving, just blinking! Just wondering if you have had other reports could you please email me back.

Additional Information:

This all happened about 9:30 to 10:00 p.m. or so. I and others did notice planes flying around the same area. Other people (military buddies) described it as unusual activity from the planes. The people in Rantoul and Charleston said it was north west of them and it was north east of me so that seems to me like we were observing the same thing. If I remember anything else you can bet I will let you know. If you would like to keep me informed please feel free to email me more info.Go ahead and just email me at (email address removed) I thank you very much for replying.

Thank you to the witness for their report.
