It reminded me of a mass UFO sighting that happened here in the Rockford area back in the early 2000’s.

Many people saw the mysterious lights in the sky, back in the early 2000’s.
Since then many have debated on what they may have been.

There really has been no “official” explanation of the event.

As big as the event was,
There is not much online documentation of the event.

I did find a Youtube video, It was posted by a Youtube username of Tom King.

Did you witness those strange lights in the sky, back in the early 2000’s?
Have video or photos of the strange lights in the sky?
