I was driving my girlfriends car down Harision Ave. in Rockford IL. at about 7:00 at night and saw a bright Orange light in the Sky it was gowing north east to south west. It looked just like the back taillights to a car, so i keeped glancing at it till it was out of sight wich was about 40 seconds . My girlfrend was with me but could not see the light, it happend to fast, and was up to high over the car on my side for her to see it.It did not blink, or made no sound.There was not many cars on the road, it was partily cloudy , and went straight, and fast, i think it was more like 15 or 20 seconds i absereved the object.
