Although the eyewitness doesn't state anything about the orbs in the sky, I did circle them in red, but click the original link to see the very large size original photo. SCW

Eyewitness states:
On my drive to work, roughly 4 am Chicago time I saw strange lights almost immediately once I got out of my subdivision and onto a secondary road. Whilst driving west on 143 rd st. in Homer Glen from west of Parker rd to HWY i355 I was completely enamored by these strangely shaped beams of light. Once I got to the HWY I saw them more clearly. Just by luck I had my "good" cell phone with me and was able to snap a shot of the lights.

The lights did not move, they did not make noise. I observed them from some distance. I was on the HWY and they looked to be high in the sky off in the distance south of i355 @ archer ave. exit. 

One was red-orange, one was white, one was yellow, and the others were very faint, but there seemed to be at least 4 and as many as 6 beams of light. 

I first thought that the lights may be some chemical reaction of the gasses released into the atmosphere by the refinery, but then I saw the smoke from the refinery being blown away almost immediately escaping the smoke stack, and these lights were high above making it seem impossible that plumes of anything would go straight up because of the winds that morning. 

My feelings were that of amazement. I don't like to jump to conclusions as to what this may be. I am smart enough o realize that I do not know much about chemical reactions of gasses in the atmosphere and I also know nothing about aliens, or UFO sightings. 

I lost sight of the object by the time I got to the i55 exit because I kept driving on my way to work. 


  1. The long ones are looking like light columns. They often appear in northern regions when the air is very cold.

  2. awesome... the orbs that is.The "beams" are probably just light pillars caused by the precipitation reflecting the light, these are actually very common, with that being said, bring on the intergalactic beings!! I'm waiting and ready. Peace and Love. Thanks Scott W for you contribution to the awakening.

  3. we saw the same thing in london ontario on the23th january ,but much more lights all over the sky from north to east-south ,,

  4. Hello I live in Perrysburg Ohio and tonight when I was letting my dog outside a beam of light caught my eye. I ran to my parents room to have them take a look at what I was seeing. When we all got to the back door we noticed that there was anywhere from 6-9 beams of light. We quickly took two pictures and although the quality of the pictures couldn't fully capture what we could see with our naked eye the pictures are still unbelievable. Roughly 10 minutes after we took the pictures the lights where gone.

  5. Hello there, my girlfriend and I are in Evergreen Park, Illinois and we witnessed a bright red orb in the southern sky. No blinking lights, no sounds, at 8:30pm on Saturday, March 29, 2014. We were not able to get a good picture or video. Wondering if anyone else saw what we saw.
