The Tinley Park Lights is a series of five mass UFO sightings in Tinley Park and Oak Park in Illinois. Thousands of residents in the suburbs of Chicago witnessed the UFOs on August 21, 2004, October 31, 2004, October 1 of 2005, and on October 31, 2006. All of the witnesses of these events reported observing three hovering objects which were round in shape, a red-orange illuminated color, and formed a triangle. In each event, the UFOs appeared for about 30 minutes. The UFOs hovered at a relatively low altitude, and were seen from about 12 miles in each direction.
Thousands of witnesses:
These mass sightings of UFOs captured the attention of hundreds of witnesses in each occurrence. During the October 31 sightings, entire blocks of kids and parents who were trick-or-treating for Halloween, stopped in the street to observe the lights in the sky. On the August 21 occurrence, there was major traffic from the Ozzfest event at Tinley Park that had just ended, giving the UFOs a huge amount of observers.
Some witnesses reported seeing airplanes in the same area of the UFOs.

There were varying opinions of the arrangement of the lights. Some witnesses believed that the lights were independent of each other but formed a triangular shape and others believe they saw the lights attached to a large triangular object.
The History channel’s show, UFO Hunters studied the events and video footage using GPS locations of the video and the movement of the lights. They concluded that the lights moved in unison, suggesting that they were connected by some force or object about 1,500 feet across.
These lights were also seen in British Columbia, Texas, and even Australia around the same time as the Tinley Park sightings.
General Description of the UFO Sightings:

The Tinely Park Lights have yet to be identified. There are so many witnesses to these occurrences that dismiss the idea of the lights being conventional crafts, military flares, or celestial bodies due to their unique behavior and appearance.
There has not been any major investigation by the Federal Aviation Administration or any other agencies and there has not been any reported radar tracking of the unidentified flying objects.
The Tinely Park Lights sightings were covered by local news agencies, the Chicago Sun Times and Chicago Magazine.
