3 AM. Delivering papers 1 block north of Fort Sheridan, off Sheridan Rd. Dark, floating, soundless UFO floats across sky.

At 3AM, about 4 yrs ago, when I was 21, I was delivering papers in Lake Forest, Illinois. I was 1 block north of Fort Sheridan. The sky was dimly illuminated by surrounding streetlights, etc... I looked up, and over treetops a dark, lightless, soundless, UFO floated. It was so low I probably could of hit it with a rock, easily. I was excited, and decided to follow it. I noticed it wasn't the shape of flying craft normally seen. It was a solid shape, like rectangle, triangle, square, but I was more excited to follow it, so I didn't focus on exact shape. It wasn't enormous, but not real small neither. I did notice it seemed to have bumps and ridges on the bottom. I have a sunroof, so when it flew over my car I could see it. I chased it, but soon gave up because I couldn't maneuver the small suburban roads well enough to follow it's flight path. It floated in a straight path, not seeming to gain altitude (very low). It floated slowly. I lost it in the darkness. My assumption was it either flew directly over Fort Sheridan, or it took off from Fort Sheridan. (Fort Sheridan, as to my knowledge, is a closed military base).
