Location: Schaumburg, IL
Shape: Oval
Duration::30 secs
One brightly-lit oval took off from the ground into the sky.

I was driving west on Algonquin Road, and I saw a streak go across the sky. It started slow at first, near the ground, and then it took off really fast and got bigger as it got closer. It was like a comet, but in reverse, like it was flying out instead of in.
