Location: South Hollan, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:approximately 5 seconds
blinking light moving from east to west, then shot south with no banking then disappeared. Approximate time was 5 seconds.

While watching in the sky for the space shuttle/space station to pass over the Chicago area (9:22p.m.) We observed a blinking light moving from east to west for about 3 seconds, then shot south without banking. It was seen for approximately 2 seconds south then was gone.

It was then we observed the shuttle docked to the space station move across the sky from west to east. Judging from the speed of the shuttle it appeared the blinking light we'd seen prior to the shuttle moved at an extremely greater speed. Also, this object appeared to cross the shuttles path just prior to the shuttle coming into view.
