Location: Waukegan/Gurnee, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:1 minute
Pulsating, white, fuzzy light seen over Illinois

Stepped outside onto balcony at 9:39 PM cst. facing West/NorthWest. Observed a jet flying over and then noticed a light pulsate out in space. The light lit up then dimmed. The light was white and fuzzy. I watched it pulsate twice in a 10 second period.

I called for my daughter to come have a look and she witnessed it too. It blinked AND was moving to the south. It was not a plane or jet. Maybe the space station was passing over and the sun reflected off it, i don't know...gonna check space station position at that time.

We watched it in the western sky but looking almost straight up (80 degrees from the horizon)...we observed a white, fuzzy, pulsating light that only pulsated every 10 seconds and it was moving to the south. It WAS NOT a plane or jet, that's for sure. Had an eerie feeling about it.
