Location: Mokena, IL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 minutes
While waiting in my vehicle at my daughter's bus stop in -4 degree weather, we both witnessed a very large object in the northern part of the sky. It appeared to be about 4 times the size of a 737 plane, as compared at equal distance.

It was still fairly dark outside so the object appeared to be extremely bright and white against the dark sky. It was somewhat triangular in shape with rounded corners. The object never moved in a horizontal manner. After watching it remain still for about 2 minutes, the object slowly moved straight upwards until I lost sight of it from my vehicle.
