Do you believe in UFOs? You might after watching this video that was posted on YouTube that shows a bright orb light that become cross-shaped over the course of six minutes.

The video was shot in Joliet at about 11:30 p.m. Jan. 5 by two snowplow drivers who were clearing parking lots near Louis Joliet Mall. A freelance reporter has posted it on several UFO Web sites, including the Mutual UFO Network, but so far there's been only one response from someone suggesting it might be a plane flying directly at the two men.

Whatever it is, it's certainly intriguing and it was witnessed by two people who seem pretty amazed by what they're seeing.

But, judge for yourself. Tell us what you think it is in the comment box below.

For the first 30 seconds I was like umm that's the moon guys lol. Not too sure what it was but a plane flying straight at them or in their direction would've gotten there quicker I'd think. The video was over 5min long and the light didn't look like it got any bigger really like it should've if it was moving toward them . Although they were zooming in and out so maybe it did and I couldn't tell. In any case those two guys were pretty funny.

Cheech and Chong shouldn't be hitting the tied stick while operating a snowplow.

Hold the bloody camera still! I think you got a plane heading directly for you making a landing approach. Sorry to be a spoiler!

I'd have a fox screen done on all participants....

No self-respecting UFO would come near Joliet. Dream on.....

NSA spying drone!
Boss January 13, 2014 at 08:44 AM
it cant be a plan landing because theres no air fields in that direction. man it was a toy choper or mayber even a really choper. and maybe the choper what assisting police looking for someone? in joliet I wouldnt doubt that one.

UFO wasn't as good after Michael Schenker left in '78.

I've seen this numerous times joliet to morris to even Chicago. My fiance and I see it all the time. It makes tons of different formations in the sky. The most we've seen was 13 of them, closely together making a zigzag pattern in the sky on Pine Bluff Rd.

I think Greg Brady is up to his old tricks again.

Government spies!
Rachyl Garcia January 13, 2014 at 01:27 PM
I believe the driver who filmed it. I guess you'd have to see it for yourselves. They make no sound and the lights fade out, disappear, and come back.. as well as the other ones.. they seriously appear out of nowhere.
Rachyl Garcia January 13, 2014 at 01:32 PM
And the way they move into formation is just insane! You can hear a plane, you can hear a chopper.. you can't hear these at all! And they're usually so low to the ground..you'd be able to hear it. They are definitely no stars either. Its kind of disrespectful to assume the man was on drugs because he says its a UFO. It IS a UFO if you don't know what the hell it is.. & I totally believe there are other beings out there.. what makes us so special to be the only planet with any life form? You need to open your minds and stop believing what the media spoon feeds you.

we know this will end up a "Weather Balloon" report....Which is probably for the best because we humans are stupid as hell probably kill what ever it was,then spend the next 25 years figuring out how it worked,and spread out the next 50 years of useless info we "Think" is correct as education.
Rachyl Garcia January 13, 2014 at 02:33 PM
That's true. it probably would be killed by peoples' stupidity and ignorance.
Buddy P January 13, 2014 at 03:06 PM
It was a plane,just because of the flashing lights and at one point you can actually see red lights flashing.If it was a UFO they were checking out earth and got the heck out of here!Smart move!
Nicole Mandaschet January 13, 2014 at 03:35 PM
I have seen about 8 to 10 of them in joliet just sitting there a few times, its odd

I think the Spacey Men in the UFOs find watching Joliet cathartic-you know- the whole "There but before the grace of God goes me" thing.
The Truth Hurts January 13, 2014 at 10:24 PM
There's no way it was a plane. Planes don't hover for 5 mins.
Chris Becker January 14, 2014 at 02:14 AM
From the color that some one mentioned it was I believe me and a buddy saw one during the day time. It was gray in color with no lights on it at all. And it just hovered there for a couple min then just started moving away from us. I know what I saw that day and it was no plane, or anything I can explain.
Gladys Naling January 14, 2014 at 11:37 AM
I believe it's Venus shining at it's brightest. I heard there would be a planet shining real bright and that it would be easy to think it's a UFO.. IDK, look it up.
Alexandra Mitchell January 15, 2014 at 08:01 PM
Scott Air Force Base isn't to far south of Joliet maybe it's a new type of drone or plane. Still kinda weird though.
Rick Burian January 30, 2014 at 09:13 AM
It is most definitely a plane. I live in far west Joliet off ridge rd and theodore and see several planes like this come towards us out west. From afar they look like a single light then give it 5-10 minutes and they pass over hear and are clearly planes. It was never hovering it was just moving towards them. The other reason I know it is a plane is because of the flashing strobe light. When it gets towards the end you can absolutely tell it is a plane. But for those of you who believe this is a UFO come out to ridge and theodore. You can see 30-40 UFO's on a clear night looking out west.

I know what it was!!!! JESUS CAME BACK AND LEFT EVERYBODY!!!!
David S. Hanchette February 01, 2014 at 06:55 PM
I believe we are watching a star that is below the horizon. We can see some of its light because it is being bent by the curvature of the earth as it travels. (Such bending of light also occurs in the scientifically established phenomenon known as the brief "green flash" which can sometimes be seen at the last moment of sunset as the sun falls below the horizon.) All the wiggling and wobbling and shape changing are a result of atmospheric effects which do not allow the light to travel in a simple straight line. I have seen a similar star every year at Lake Superior for 30 years -- it appears pretty stationary, and then suddenly it moves and shows colors and everyone goes "Oooo" at the same moment. It keeps doing this, being still, and then suddenly doing a loop de loop. Bet that's what it is.

It is unidentified and it is flying so it is safe to say that it is definitely a UFO. That is NOT to say it is a space ship from another planet. You can't identify it as a plane nor can you identify it as a hellicopter, you can speculate, but not say for sure what it is. Judging from it's movement or lack of, an experimental drone is a possibility.
