The couple was not alone in witnessing the UFO incident that became widely known as the Tinley Park Lights. Actually, there was a series of five sightings that night, being witnessed by hundreds of witnesses. The incident eventually attracted national interest.
History Channel’s “UFO Hunters” did an interview with Nettles in 2008. The sightings attracted her and other witnesses in the field of UFO investigation. Shortly after her revelation online, Mutual UFO Network Illinois director Sam Maranto contacted her, and she became intrigued by the MUFON’s investigation and eventually joined the team.
Just last week, Maranto told the audience during a meeting at the Orland Park Library that he will re-investigate the Tinley Park Lights in celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the mysterious event. Moranto explained that their investigation is not about believing but research. He revealed that MUFON is looking for more investigators who will go through training.
