Two oval shapes seen in Chicago western suburbs, moving south. Friday, Feb.2

At 4:30 p.m., Friday February 2nd I was traveling south from Schaumburg when I spotted two brightly lit, elliptical shapes in the sky. I have trouble gauging distances but I would say they were at least five to ten miles away. They "floated," or "hovered," with no apparent propulsion system, moving south-southwest.

Between the shapes was a light that flashed every fifteen seconds.

What intrigued me most was the fact that the shapes did not change in distance between each other as they moved.

I was too far away to view any details, if there were any.

My initial thought was that they were cloud formations, but after seeing them move for twenty minutes I did not see any change to them, and they remained equidistant from each other.

Then I thought that they could have been a pair of airplanes pulling advertisement banners. I have seen these planes over the last few months, but they stayed fairly close to the Schaumburg region. These shapes were quite a distance away from Schaumburg.

They were not jets, blimps or other aircraft that I’ve seen before.

Anybody else see these things? (digital illustration attached)
