Location: Centralia, IL
Shape: Rectangle
Duration:5 minutes
Returning home from shopping with two other friends, we got out of the car with our packages and I noticed this extremly large rectangle shapped object going South on Hwy 51 just out side of the town of Centrailia IL.

As I watched my friends looked at me looking at the sky then looked up and saw it too. There wasno sound and it also looked transparent - it was the size of a large two story building - it lasted about 5 mins or more and we were all three speachless.

It will be in our minds forever. we wonder if we were the only ones out to see it that cold Jan. night. it traveled slow across the city then vanished.
