    This is an e-mail I just received. Does anyone want to hazard a guess
    as to what she saw?      :)
    I have updated my SKY VIEWS web site, below, for May.
    I found your email and site on the web after wondering what I saw the the
    It was around 5am Florida time..looking East, I saw with my very far sited eyes
    what appeared to be three rings of
    lights..I could count 5 lights on each ring, so I am guess it is circular and
    more than 5 lights, but it didn't move...light
    rays shot out from the top and bottom of the three rings and woke my husband up
    to see this site too. He gave me a not
    so good pair of binoculars to try and see it clearer, but it was just a clear
    explanation of what I saw. I stared at it for
    about an hour and a half before it disappeared into the clouds and light from
    the morning. 
    Is this a direct tv sort of satillite...or a weather type machine?
    Just curious...never living in the boonies before...Chicago city...never saw
    anything like this in the sky...
    My husband ignored me with what I thought was thrilling...and screemed Beam Me
    Up get his attention
    and said if I don't show up later....(:-)....
    This is a great sit and I have saved it now to see all the beautiful happenings
    you have shared on this site.
