UFO Sighting in Chicago Heights, Illinois on 2017-06-05 02:50:00 - Random flashing of white light in space directly over head.
Went outside to smoke and i often stargaze. out of the corner of my eye was a flash of white light. i thought it was a meteor on entry. then i saw another flash, then the 3rd flash i caught in a starless field. i saw about 7 flashes total in 10 minutes. the flashes of light were obviously not objects but it was definitely happening in space. the lights were of significant size & brightness; i'd say bigger & brighter than jupiter in the night sky and they seemed to be the cause of an event instead of an object. for instance i thought it could've been a wormhole opening or closing but the lights more closely resembled a muzzle-flash, yes, as if i was witness to some star war. in my last 15 seconds staring up i caught the movement of a tiny blue dot of light at 80% off horizon moving in a straight line from southwest to northeast until it vanished in the field where the flashing white lights had been. i'm considering that it could have been a craft leaving the planet from earth's southeastern hemisphere in a northeastern trajectory. ps-i've been star-gazing my whole life, i have seen satellites, meteors, comets and the iss. these flashing white lights did not share any characteristics of the aforementioned space objects & if i had managed to track the blue dot of light to near the horizon i'd peg it as a satellite but it had just disappeared before my eyes at about 95% off the horizon. i don't know what that was.
