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.

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.

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 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.
