What is that in the sky? Is it a plane? Is it a satellite? Is it a...........I am not sure what that is!

When you look up into the sky, you never know what you are going to see. Sometimes it could be a plane flying into the Chicago-Rockford International Airport. It could be a large bird like an eagle. Then there are just some things that you can't explain and we are talking X-Files crazy.

There are people here in Rockford and all across the country that believe that there are more than just humans that live in the universe. There have been thousands of sightings across the country and right here in the Rockford area.

The National UFO Reporting Center has a listing of all the UFO sightings in the United States and Canada. It breaks down each state and province.

The last one reported in Illinois was in Chicago on Jan 19th. You have to go back almost two years for the last sighting that was reported in Rockford.

Then there was a report of an Unidentified Flying Object in Loves park just two months earlier. On September 25th a person filed this report:

"Object moves across the sky, and then hovers.

I walked outside at 6:20 am and saw a light in the sky. The light reminded me of the ISS or a satellite, but much brighter.

It was almost above me just to my south. It was moving from the West to the SouthWest. It was moving at a slow/medium pace. As I said, I thought it was the ISS or satellite.

There was no sound or visible features. But the thing that happened next, convinced me it was not.

As it was moving, it just stopped and hovered. I sat there and watched it for approx 6 minutes as it hovered in the sky. It was doing a "rocking" motion. The light was still bright but the size was just slightly smaller than when I first saw it.

The ISS, Satellite, Chinese Lanterns, etc... Do NOT move and then stop and hover."

Is it possible that life exists elsewhere? That is for you to decide.
