I witnessed an object closely hovering in the sky with 3 different brightly colored lights. When it moved, it was slow and steady, stopping on occasion. Almost as if it was scoping out an area.

It was about 2:15- 2:30 am on Wednesday morning I was driving west on Webster ave in the Bucktown area. While waiting at the stoplight at Damen ave, I was looking ahead and noticed something in the sky that was hovering and very brightly lit up. I thought that it seemed a little strange that it was not moving at all. When the light turned green I moved ahead crossing over Damen ave and all the time looking up and to the left to try to figure out what it was. When I got directly by it (and this thing was not that high up at all) I became so excited that I stopped in the middle of the street and got out of my car because I thought that if it were a helicopter there must be some noise happening. But when i got out of the car, I looked directly at it and there was absolutely no noise at all! I was so excited that I tried desperatly to get a good look at it but it was so dark that all I could see were at least three lights, two yellowish white and one bluish white. It started to move to the east and i followed it with my eyes until it started to slowly move to the north and then behind the church going nw. I jumped in the car determined to follow it but as it moved off I lost view of it. The thing that was weird was there was no noise, the way that it hovered and moved and the fact that it was pretty low in the sky totally freaked me out. I just know something was strange about this and i felt very much like this object was kind of scoping out the area. I called the hotline for the first time to report this because this is the only time I have ever seen anything like this and felt that it was important enough to report it.
