Duration:2 minutes
Large Cigar shaped object in Wheaton IL quickly disappears in the clear sky after cartwheeling north for a minute or two.

My husband and I were driving west on Geneva rd in Wheaton, IL right by the Jewel Osco, when we saw a bright silver, cigar shaped object in the sky. It was clear out with very few clouds and the sun was shining. I noticed the object and told my husband and we both watched it fly north and after a minute or so, it quickly diminished in size and then completely disappeared right in the middle of a clear blue sky. It seemed to be lower than a plane would fly but still up high. I'd say it was as long as a normal commercial plane, but 3 times the width. It seemed to cartwheel as it flew north before it disappeared before our very eyes.
