Box shaped cylinder moves siletly over suburbs of Chicago

I was traveling in my car eastbound on Lake Street in Roselle Il. It was still light out.

I saw in the sky to the east, about 300 feet in the air a square shaped cylinder. It could best be described as a giant box kite. It was dark tan-brownish in color.

At first I thought it was an advertising banner the kind that fly over sporting events. There was no airplane pulling this thing.

It was about 100-150 feet long and about 30-40 feet high and wide. It left no smoke or vapor in its wake. If there had been an airplane pulling it then I would have heard an engine.

This object made no sound.It seemed to be covered in a cloth because the outside of the object looked like it flutered in the wind.
