Tell Me I'm Not Crazy (VANITY)

I just saw three orange lights flying over Champaign, Illinois. There were no visible blinking lights. What could they have been? Helicopters? Military? They were flying too fast to be baloons, but seemed slower than jets.

The orange lights seems to be the new craze on the ufo sites. I saw many during the 4th of July in Seattle. May very well have been “Chinese lanterns”. However, it was a bit odd that they were moving in different directions (some heading north, some south, etc.). So who knows.

Nothing to worry about - just weather balloons igniting swamp gas.

If they were equidistant in a trianglular pattern and silent then it was most likely a TR3B (black project).

It was probably Hillary flying to a witch convention in Chicago, carrying three Jack O’ Lanterns to present as hostess gifts.

I'll refrain from the urge to be sarcastic (Its hard though!). Quite possibly anything -- military, I would imagine.

And that doesn't make it anything suspicious either. One day this summer I was outside and a blackhawk flanked by an apache and huey came screaming along at almost treetop level. Quite a thrill -- I always get swelled up when I see our military in action. I thought the huey was strange, but I don't know what/if they still use those for.

I wonder how many drones are flying over civilian areas. Anyway, consider reporting it on http://www.ufostalker.com/.

If there were three blue lights with them, it could be swamp gas from the Boneyard.

Oskee-wow-wow.

We used to make these things when I was a kid using plastic dry cleaner bags, drinking straws and candles. If three of these rose high enough they might catch a really fast wind current and appear to be traveling too fast for balloons.

Thank you all for your suggestions. Now that I’m home I will explain in more detail. I was driving west just east of downtown Champaign. I looked up and saw an orange “fireball”-looking-thing flying south or southeast, in front of me. My first impression was that it was odd, followed by the thought that it might be a plane on fire. I looked for blinking lights and saw none. Then I saw two more similar objects coming behind it, also heading south or southeast. I opened my car window and heard no aircraft and heard nothing unusual. I pulled over and grabbed for my phone but by the time I got the video feature running they were just about out of sight. That was it.

Thought about that — but they were flying pretty fast to the south — exactly the opposite direction of the way the wind was supposed to be blowing per weather.com.
