Location: Tinley Park area (west of), IL
Shape: Light
Duration:15 minutes?
One bright large bright light which had been stationary for a 10 minutes traveled at very hight speed to a 2nd more distant light.

Traveling west on Flossmoor Rd. & continuing on Rt. 83 my husband and I saw a large bright white light in the west, slightly to the north before sunset. It was too large to be a star & was sort of round/oval shaped. As we traveled west at about 50 miles per hour for about 10 minutes, the light never changed size or direction in relation to us. Then we saw another one further away (it was smaller), in the same direction, with the exact same light and shape. The lights looked odd but we dismissed them until we both saw the larger (closer) object/light suddenly fly to the more distant light at what looked like at very hight speed, and the 2 lights merged. After a minute or so, one returned to the same closer location. A minute or so later, the more distant object/light disappeared. Then the closer one faded to pink and faded out. It didn't move away or suddenly disappear, it just faded. We were both rather stunned.
