dark,shadowy ,oval/rectangular object , with no lights,traveling at "approaching/landing" height level from the soutwest to norteast.

i was sitting in my vehicle in a dimly lit parking lot facing west and could see a good portion of the night sky.i was looking up at a water tower and watching airplanes in the night sky.i happened to be just southeast of o'hare airport and realized i was in the flight path of landing and departing commercial aircraft.

as i was looking into the western horizon,i was gazing at the water tower when i noticed an object approaching from the southwest heading to the seemed to be at "landing and takeoff" level height.traveling somewhat just above the appeared to be somewhere in between 4 to 10 city blocks away as it traveled from soutwest to northeast.the total duration of time i had visual contact with this object was about 5 seconds.

the object was oval at first and then changed to rectangular as it headed northeast.i could barely see the object because it had no flashing lights at all as a matter of fact. i could just see a dark object and the outline of it.if i was not looking up at at the sky, i would not have noticed it at really had the appearance of a shadow flying along the was darker than the night sky and as far as i know, the moon had not yet risen above the horizon in the west.

was very strange to see.
