Im from chgo,live by one of chgo's airports.On November 22 2012,I was watching TV around 2.30am when I noticed a white light in the eastern sky ,my living room faces east.Moving north to south,I thought it was a helicopter so it didn't strike me as strange it seemed to move as such.I also have a back ground in aviation (pilots licence).As this light moved north to south it stopped then moved back south to north then stopped and hovered there for a while.After about a hour it seemed strange it was in the same position.So I got up and got my binoculars to see if I could see it.I couldn't judge the distance or elevation ,but my guess was this light was out over lake michigan I did at this time see a airplane traveling east then bank north.When I seen the white light fade away,only to come back at a higher elevation,then fade again.Then thats when the light show started green then blue ,red.yellow ,orange all seemed to be on dimmer switches fading out only to reappear in a different spot.Then they started forming shapes like a diamond shape then a rectangular form and others .This lasted till about the time the sun started to rise and at that time the lights all started to fade away with the white light being the last to go.At one point I really didn't believe what I was looking at so I woke my brother up to look at what I was seeing wasn't my imagination and he seen it too.I was so amazed at what I saw ,that I waited up for the next two nights to see if the lights came back and they did.What seemed strange is I called the airport and asked if they seen any lights in the eastern skies and they said no,I felt kinda like a crackpot calling them and asking them that.I never seen them again, even tho I look all the time in that direction.Then on evening I was wathching a UFO program of lights over Tinley Park which is close to me ,when they showed film footage of the lights and they were exactly the same ones I had seen,it sent a shiver down my spine.In a million years I never thought I would be one of those people who witnessed this sort of thing.
