Location: Chicago, IL
Shape: Sphere
Duration:3-5 min.
A pinkish brown sphere with sporatic lights crosses the sky at a medium steady pace.

the spherical, pinkish-brown object crossed the sky from southeast to northwest at a steady rate at around 3 in the morning on sunday the 5th. it was seen after my friend and i noticed a star shooting across the sky, which left a glowing tail for a few seconds. it was debated if it was a balloon, but i saw a couple of sporatic blinking lights around it, and the steady rate was also questionable, unless it was in a jet stream.
