|UFO Observed During Chicago Thunderstorm
Facing east. Observing a thunderstorm over Chicago/Lake Michigan, with a lot of lightning. Saw a bright star like object directly over head (maybe 90 degrees from horizon) in a break in the clouds. Object became brighter as if it were approaching the Earth, stopped and then rapidly became smaller as if it were moving away from the Earth. Finally it disappeared. this entire show lasted no more than 3 seconds. At first I thought it was part of the meteor shower. But I have observed meteor in the past and this did not move like a meteor.
