LARGE 'INSECT-SHAPED' UFO Shoots Projectiles at Illinois Eyewitness!

An Illinois man had been capturing photos of various UFOs for quite some time. Then a large 'insect-shaped' craft appears and starts shooting projectiles at him and a school bus!

I received the following account:

"Hello, Mr. Strickler. It was November 17, 2017, at approximately 3 PM. I was driving home on the interstate (I-57) and headed north. I had been capturing a lot of UFOs on camera outside of Effingham, Illinois where I work. It got to the point that it seemed I could get at least 2 or 3 photos a week by just randomly taking photographs of the sky. They were either triangles, rectangles, or shaped like a bottle of Pennzoil.

On this day I felt I was being watched, so I decided to film my rearview mirror on the driver's side. I noticed immediately an object by the sun, lowered its altitude, and then went back up. It reminded me of a large insect/robot. It stayed with me flying up over bridges as I went under them and dodged other vehicles. At one point it had to maneuver around trees on the side of the road. It had half a ball of light on the bottom and smaller ones with it. I thought it shot at me and could hear something hit my vehicle.

At one point a small projectile nearly hit a school bus. I became angered at that point and said "Do you know who I am?" That is when an orb shot towards them. Either from me or from somewhere else. I lost track of it as I got into town. The entire event lasted approximately 15 minutes.

During the event, I felt attacked and invaded. After a few months, I felt almost as if it was a test. I feel like that because I have many photos and another video of black objects going into a partial rainbow. I had 3 cameras running that day. 1 was in sepia mode and captured them and an orb came out of a field. The 2 cameras without sepia captured only the rainbow.

BTW, I was unable to capture a photo of the object. I thought that I had, but the image on my digital camera was totally blank." V
