Location: Mt. Olive, Illinois
Sunday, September 9th, I received the first of three e-mails
from a resident of Mt. Olive, Illinois, who took video and
photos of something she can't identify:
am an average 48-year-old mother who works and raises her
daughter. I have nothing to gain by sending this video or
photos. I live in the United States and I have witnessed
things on video I never thought I would see. I was never
into hunting for the truth about UFO's. I am not crazy,
although when I first watched my videos, I thought I might
be heading down the path of craziness. I don't know who
to send these to and it scares me to think that the raw
unedited footage would cause some unwanted repraisels on
my end. What you will watch was filmed in my parents' backyard
in the dark. This is definitely not a small drone. I haven't
done anything with this video. I lightened up a few pics
to see what I was looking at. It scares me to think our
own government would keep this from us. I just want the
truth. You must watch the video in the dark to get a good
look. All pics are screenshots from the video.
let me know if you see what I see. You must watch the video
to the very end.
sky does not look normal at times here.
know this is not a hoax or joke."
on Monday, September 10, I received the second e-mail with
the following details and several photos she made from her
you for responding. My name is Jeanette rensing. I live
in Mt. Olive Illinois with my parents. Just to let you know
I have shown my parents, my mom is such a skeptic and my
dad said I should send the videos and photos to someone.
I have more videos and more pics.
first video I took was in benld Illinois which is 11 min
long. It was early on August 26 at 520am at my sister's
house. I was outside smoking. I just happen to look up to
the west which would be over mt. Olive. Benld is fairly
close. Anyway when I looked up I saw something just take
off from a stand still and manuvering unlike anything I
have seen. I ran inside to get my phone and started recording.
I will send some pics from that recording.
video I sent you was taken at 12:40 am on 08.28.2018 in
Mt. Olive in my parents yard. We live out by a lake called
lake kaho. There is really no direction. Everything that
I see is usually either directly above. I can turn in every
direction and not have to strain to see things that definitely
do not look like stars. There seems to be more than 1 or
2. It is hard to see because we had no moon light and we
are just outside of town. That video was taken from the
yard at my parents. I was pretty much holding the phone
straight up facing either west or southeast. The reason
I say that is I have about 15 videos with pics from all
have had rain for the last few days but there is normally
activity every night since August 26.
just some background on me. I have never been deemed crazy
not been placed in any mental institution. I feel like I
need to say that. Lol. I do know lights in the sky. I know
the patterns of lights on airframes. I work in aviation.
Well aware of Airbus lanes they go right across the house.
that being said. I see helicopters and planes. One night,
I watched a plane going north at night at my parents' house.
As soon as the plane passed, I watched what I thought was
a star flip a light from the west side of the object to
the east side of the object and then leave its stationary
position and take off east. It was practically straight
above my head. It would have been located on the west side
of the plane. Then after that one took off, I saw 2 more
move the same direction. Not sure where they came from.
I know they must of been a little further west.
some nights after I see a plane pass, I will see objects
flashing lights. Just like you would flash your bright lights.
This was not reflection either.
I know is I have several pics from the last few weeks, all
from videos. Here they are. I don't know what this stuff
is, but it doesn't look normal."
