Artist depiction of UFO sighting (observer facing East) in Arlington Heights with an approaching flight path from northeast to southwest, just south of the intersection of Arlington Heights Road and Palatine Road. A buzzing, sparking noise coincided with each 'dash' that ejected from the rear rectangle. The following morning, WGN Radio announcer Wally Phillips gave a news account of numerous sightings overnight of UFO's traveling in two's and three's from Minnesota to Florida and states in between. Exact year, day and date of the Arlington Heights UFO sighting is unknown, but probably was between 7:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m in the year 1969.

Experts (that did not see the object) explained that the sightings were ball lightning.

UFO Flight Path is shown as the blue arrow. Point of observation (red push-pin, approx. -87.97796, 42.10469 long/lat) is directly south of the middle of the flight path in the center of the north-south street (Belmont Avenue). Observer ran south to next east-west street (Lynwood Avenue) to see if UFO was visible near the lower horizon of the streetscape, but no further sighting occurred. The neighborhood is just south of Palatine Road between Arlington Heights Road and Rand Road. The neighborhood is also just north of Thomas Middle School in Arlington Heights. For a perspective of the area, check the
link to dynamic map (10 April 2002).

The UFO disk was a bluish-white illumination very similar to the color appearance of lightning. There were no distinguishing marks or configurations, except the rectangle at the rear of the object. The altitude of the object appeared to be about as low as any aircraft that use the 14L runway approach to O'Hare International Airport, but there is no way this was a conventional aircraft. O'Hare runway 14L/32R is about 7.8 miles from this observed location. The buzzing, sparking noise did not have a noticeable delay from the sighting of the coinciding 'dash' ejecting from the rear of the described rectangle (indicates close proximity at speed of sound). Also an audio panning effect from left to right was noticed as the 'dash' ejected from left to right. The noise volume also faded as the light intensity of the 'dash' faded. The 'dashes' numbered about six (but could have been greater along the whole path in the sky) and ejected in an irregular rhythm. Each 'dash' faded to darkness (no longer visible leaving the object) at about 1.0 to 1.5 times the diameter of the disk in a line directly opposite the direction of the UFO. Assuming they were some sort of propulsion-related objects and ejecting irregularly, it immediately seemed ironic that the UFO was cruising along very smoothly. Becaused of the high azimuth of the object at its nearest path, it was impossible to detect a vertical dimension of the object. The disk did not pulsate, did not change size or shape, did not change color or light intensity, and did not show any change regarding pitch, roll or yaw. The sighting of the straight-line path of the UFO lasted less than 15 seconds.

Considering the symmetry of the disk and the distinct rectangle at the rear of the object, it seems unlikely that the object was ball lightning ('
ball lightning' in Wikipedia).

Holloman AIr Force Base UFO 1964
Remarkably similar to the Arlington Heights siting: An unidentified flying object photographed by a government employee over the Holloman Air Development Center in New Mexico in 1964 was published in an AOL story in March 2008 (UFO Photos Draw National Attention AOL Posted: 2008-03-29 23:08:5).

Nike Radar Stations in Arlington Heights Picked Up UFO's in 1958
A notable UFO report on several UFO websites shows that the Arlington Heights, Illinois Nike Base was the last radar station to track extremely fast UFO's that were lost on radar screens about 150 miles west of the Arlington Heights location. Six UFO's were originally sighted at about 2:00 p.m. in June or July of 1958 over the Atlantic Ocean east of Montauk Point (southern tip of Long Island, New York). Traveling a straight line at speeds of 1300 to 1400 miles per hour, they traversed roughly a straight line past radar stations in Montauk (Camp Hero), New York, Saratoga Springs, New York; Benton, Pennsylvania and Arlington Heights, Illinois. Montauk Air Force Station is associated with a number of myths associating the Montauk Air Force Station with UFOs, space aliens, a secret world government, time travel, mind control, and global weather manipulation. does not endorse the UFO books and videos displayed at right.

Possible Oil Platform flares

Mexican Air Force Patrol

On May 13, 2004 Jaime Maussan, journalist, released his interview of Mexican Air Force pilots showing an infrared video footage from a military air patrol on March 05, 2004 against drug smuggling, that shows at least 11 very hot "spheres" moving irregularly with apparent great speed. The objects could not be seen with the naked eye, neither the crew on board nor ground personal confirmed any radar contact with the objects in question. The crew of the Mexican Air Force Merlin C26/A detected the objects following them and surrounding them at about 17:00 hours. The encounter occurred near Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche.

Some critics have explained that the objects were actually flares from oil platforms reflected into clouds

    Phoenix Lights
March 13, 1997

  Phoenix Lights

Occurred in the sky over the U.S. states of Arizona and Nevada on March 13, 1997. Lights of varying descriptions were seen by thousands of people between 19:30 and 22:30 MST, in a space of about 300 miles, from the Nevada line, through Phoenix, to the edge of Tucson. UFO proponents claimed they were part of aircraft unknown to man, but the USAF identified them as flares dropped by A-10 Warthog aircraft which were on training exercises.
