Reported: 6/5/2007 8:17:21 PM 20:17
Posted: 6/12/2007
Location: Downers Grove, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:3-4 minutes
Large, glowing bluish/white object glides eastbound over northern Illinois and Chicago.

While speaking on my cellphone and watching arriving and departing aircraft from O'Hare and Midway airports, I noticed at my WSW position heading ENE, a very bright spherical bluish-white light, (half the size of my index finger at arms-length)at approximately 20,000 ft.

The object was glowing and had no landing, anti-collision or red /green running lights, left no contrail and made no noise.

It flew over aircraft departing Midway and arriving at O'Hare and under eastbound aircraft cruising at high altitude south of my position. I estimate the speed to be x3 of 737 aircraft flying directly over me westbound, at approximately 7,500 ft. <250kts..

The object silently glided over the city of Chicago and disappeared over Lake Michigan. Note: This was a very clear night and running lights on all aircraft even at crusing altitude, were seen without difficulty. I was nervous as I saw the object as I have seen these before..

End UFO secrecy NOW!!!
