UFO Sighting in Alton, Illinois on 2016-12-26 22:15:00 - 4 lights in the sky changing directions.
My dad was out smoking a cigarette and came inside to get me to look at something he considered strange. when i got outside around 10:15pm local time i saw two lights a little under halfway up in the sky. the lights were red and white at the time. i watched it for several minutes and it would move right to left slowly and go higher in the sky. sometimes it would seem as if it would turn which showed me green and blue lights on the other side. it would take approximately 5-10 seconds for it to move higher in the sky. after several minutes of viewing and realizing this wasn't a helicopter or a plane, i went inside to grab my camera in order to take a long exposure so i could document the movements with a long exposure photograph. about 20 seconds later, i came back outside to see the object had moved all the way across the sky, now lower on the horizon, probably closer to 30 degrees. as i was getting my camera set up it began moving away. it took me a minute or two tops to get the tripod in order and my camera settings set and by then it had gone over the horizon. unfortunately, we have a railroad embankment in our back yard which obstructed our view of the low horizon. however, when i stood on my tail gate i could see that it had stalled over a red light on what i think is a tower. at one point it started to meander back towards us and i thought i'd get a good photograph of it but seconds later it was gone.
