What are the Tinley Park Lights?

Phenomenon featured on TV show about UFO sitings

The skies were clear over Tinley Park on the night of Aug. 21, 2004. Despite the absence of a breeze, the temperature outside was about as agreeable as you get in the Chicago area that time of year. All around the Chicago suburbs, people were having block parties or barbecues and otherwise enjoying the last gasps of summer.

"It was a nice night out," Tinley Park resident Bob Peterson recalls. "Me and my son Tyler were out on the back deck just hanging out when we saw them." 

They have come to be known as the Tinley Park Lights: three red orbs that have been seen floating across the suburban sky on at least three separate occasions. They usually float for a distance and eventually stop and seem to hover in a triangle pattern for as long as 30 minutes at a time.
