Shape: Triangle
Duration:2.5 minutes
Triangular aircraft, hovering, orange lights and no sound

To set things straight, I do not believe that intelligent life from other planets visit or have ever visited Earth. Once in a great while I check this sight because on two occasions in the past I have seen grey, airplane-like objects with no lights or markings or sound, gliding over Chicago.

I never bothered to submit a sighting until now, noticing that what I saw recently matches the descriptions of other entries with coinciding dates.

I was driving Eastward down Irving Park Road in Chicago and I looked out the window and saw a Triangular shaped object (with rounded corners) with approximately 6 orange lights around the perimeter on the bottom of the object. No other or flashing lights at all. It appeared to be the size of a commercial aircraft but definitely lower than one should be flying. It also appeared to be just hovering.

Now that area is common for aircraft coming into O’Hare airport from the east at lower altitudes so I took that in consideration. I also took into consideration the speed I was driving. It also occurred to me at that time that the Chicago Air and Water show was in a couple days. I've never been to the Air and Water show but I do not believe anything like that is part of it.

I pulled over and watched it just sit there, hovering. I had the window down and could not hear any noise other than the traffic. Then it started to slowly move to the South West. I looked over at the bus stop and saw a man in his 20s staring up at the sky with his jaw open (giving me validation). When I looked back up it was gone.
