Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 minutes
Bringing my family home from the Forest Preserve, driving toward downtown throgh Irving Park Road my son ((name deleted)) saw a triangular shaped objet descending from under the clauds and becoming visible at the altitude of the planes that go to O'hare airport nearby and its shape and shiny black color made him exited. I turned to look and I confirmed his sighting. I continued driving and visually tracking the object while my wife and other son tried to see from theri position in the vehicle until the residential buildings block the view. I stopped the car in the middle of the street and ran toward the buildings trying not to loose sight of the object, I lost it.

triangular, black , shiny black , from my position looked like flat of unidimensional tilted 6o degrees which allowed me to see the triangular shape. Floating, no signs of engines, no noise, descending slow, tip of triangle foward. I thought it was the stealth bomber B17, or maybe the blackbird sr71, but the way it was just suspended in the air and the way it came out of the clouds and desappeard have me thinking to this day. Most shocking to me was that was flying contrary to the path taken by the planes coming to O'hare Int. I feared a chrash, there are planes here all the time. We never talked about it till this day.
