Location: Lisle, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:10 Seconds
A solid light that changed sizes instantly and then disappeared.

It was approximately 0630 hours. I was driving eastbound on I88 going through Lisle, Illinois on my was to work. Just to my slight right so probably a Southeastern direction I was this solid light. The light looked as if it was many miles away and somewhat high in the sky. It was round and was very white but looked filtered as if it was through clouds or fog around it, but there were no clouds at that time. As I watched the light it suddenly became 4-10 times larger then its initial size in less then a second. A few seconds later the light returned to its original size and as I was grabbing my video camera I looked up and it was gone. This all took place over a period of about 10 seconds. I am a firefighter and I have never seen anything close to this in my life.
