At 6:27 a.m. CST I went out on my back deck. It was dawn and a large, airplane like craft hovered, low, over a cornfield next to Far Oaks Golf Course in Caseyville, IL. I noticed the object because it was eye level. The craft was bright white and stationary like a star, but could not have been a star because it was too low and too large. The craft was hovering very low and looked rather large to be a small personal airplane. Then the craft ascended slowly and seemed to break apart-- it looked like 2 airplanes flying side by side on an angle. The wings of the 2 craft almost touched. Then the craft came back together and I went in the house to get binoculars. When I came back outside the craft had moved behind trees and was too far away to get a good description of it. The entire time the craft / crafts were bright white like a star. At 6:50 a.m. I heard what sounded like a military helicopter in the direction the craft disapeared. Lately I have seen several military helicopters in our neighborhood in the evening. I feel confident it was most likely military even though I did not see it. I was alone during this sighting and was not afraid. I am not sure how to describe the shape of the craft. Airplane - like, star - like and chevron - like all seem to apply. This is the interesting thing. Last year on January 17, 2008, I reported a triangle shaped craft right here at Far Oaks to MUFON. I saw the craft on January 16, 2008. If you read my report from that night, I noted that two planes seemed to be flying too close together. I assumed they were two personal aircraft and at the time was more focused on the black triangle flying around the neighborhood. I did speak with someone from MUFON after this sighting.
