Illinois UFO Reports

Large Triangular Craft
June 8, 2024 - Chicago, Illinois

My friends and I were having a firepit with music on the farm Saturday evening. We saw fireworks going off in the far off distance of a nearby town. While watching them I saw a large triangular object floating with three red glowing lights in each corner. The object was facing towards us with the lights facing us but no light was shining forth. I saw it for just a few seconds in awe and shock and I turned to my friends and asked if they see this and they didn’t know what I was talking about, they were all focused on the fireworks. When I looked by it was gone. Out of my 4 friends I was the only one that saw it. I tried to justify that maybe it was a very large drone, could sparks of the fireworks make me imagine it? But I remember seeing an actual metal type craft just floating near us behind the trees and then it disappeared. View Report

Multiple UFOs
October 2, 2023 - Alton, Illinois

I just had a very profound experience tonight while taking my dog out I stopped at the upper area of the hillside within my apartment complex. There is a long stairway that has excellent Arial view at the very top of the stairs. A very unusual light appeared to be moving slowly, then almost stopped for a moment to change direction above the trees. The object seemingly darted to a different angle and had a steady disappearance as it flashed, like a pulse of light. SOON after it disappeared beyond the trees another object appeared at higher above the nights sky, with an entire different flashing, and color almost like a golden top, spinning and making very impressive maneuvers to change its color, as well. It seemed to move at a much faster speed until it disappeared far lower behind these of the hill behind the apartments. I was standing very still, and realizing that there appeared to be at least four of these smaller objects, flashing into a steady Bright light, the larger brighter craft disappeared after hovering and coming closer then lowering itself into a steady hover for over a minute. Thinking the objects might return, I ran into my apartment to grab my phone. It didn't take long for the flashing redish light to appear several minutes later. They circled the wooded area, four objects in all, perhaps had danced and circled, hovered then ultimately just speed away after obviously putting on a spectacular strobe light show effect. The first light appeared around 9:22 pm followed by the others until about 9:33 when they had also appeared and circled , disappearing with no explosion, or formation. View Report

In alsip il. Was outside smoking a cigarette and had a funny feeling. Looked up at the sky south of my location and an object was moving east from the west. The object was at first in the shape of a long bow and before i couldn’t see it had shifted into a square. The object was almost translucent with a glow that i can only explain as bending light from the city of Chicago’s light pollution. View Report
