Sparkling UFO sighted outside of Decatur Illinois on Friday, June 7th, 2002 @ 23:00Travelling home on Interstate 72 (West) outside of Decatur, Illinois on Friday June 7th, 2002 at 23:00 hrs my wife spotted what appeared to be a plane about 10 degrees above the horizon. We were positioned at roughly mile marker 140. I looked at where she was pointing and witnessed what appeared to be a series of very fast strobing white lights. These lights repeated so fast that they appeared to be "sparkling". I tried to count the number of lights and made and estimate of 7 or 8. It was rather hard to determine a shape due to our motion and the motion of the object. However the lights did appear to be strobing in a linear fashion. We maintained eye contact with these lights for about 1 minute and then the "object" disappeared. My wife scanned the Westerly sky for another 1-2 minutes and reaquired the "object" a few degrees North of its original position. The "object" was now sitting closer to the horizon and my wife noticed that the strobing lights now looked to contain red's and blue's in addition to white. The object cut in and out a couple of times with one disappearance resulting in what my wife indicated to be a blue beam shooting from underneath the "object". We returned home and noticed that the "object" had circled a wide area ourside the West side of Decatur.
