Location: St. Charles, IL
|I departed DuPage Airport in West Chicago, IL to the west at 10:00. About 10 minutes into the flight at 2,500 feet, I noticed something flying towards me. I made a quick turn to the right and upon closer inspection I saw a silver orb no greater than 1 square meter passed me heading eastbound about 100 feet below me. This orb was flashing red and passed directly to the left of my side only about 10 feet off the side of the plane.
