Bright lights In Central IllinoisI was traveling north on I-39 coming to the Lacon/Wenona exit. There was heavy thunderstorm. It was raining hard. There was a great lightning show in the sky. I noticed something the the sky - but when my eyes were diverted as I passed a semi and I went back to look it was gone. It was then I noticed five bright lights in the to the west. Five bright lights of different color. They were just above the horizon and couldn't have been more than 2 miles away. Traffic was heavy and I couldn't believe I was the only one that saw these lights. It was raining hard - lightning was constant. I'm not saying what I saw were ships - I just haven't seen those lights before or since. The lights didn't move - they were stationary ... there isn't anything out that way off Route 17 except farm land and farm houses.((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous. PD))
