Harrisburg, Illinois (United States)

Shape: Circle, Disc | Duration: Undisclosed

We had been hiking about one hour whenever the sun began to set we found a spot and sat and talked I was filming the sunset whenever I noticed the light and started filming it immediately. It was very hard without a tripod to keep it in focus but it was there. We left during the sighting but as we were walking back it was still rising upward into the sky. Swamp gas could not hover and we saw it hovering then move left and right then continue upwards against the wind. The wind would have been carrying it towards the north east not the northwest which is the main direction it followed. It also disappeared and flashed but i did not have it in focus except one time whenever it did this.
