Location: Chicago, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:2-3 minutes
Light seen of Lake Michigan in Chicago

While driving east on the Kennedy Expressway (I-90) on the way into work I saw a bright spot of light that appeared to be over the lake. The light looked as though it was not moving, just hovering. After a few minutes the light faded rather abrubtly. I thought it possible to have been Venus as it is visible with Saturn at night, but I did not notice it when I first got on the expressway and I am not sure if Venus is still visible at that time.
