Saw a strange, fast flying object with NO lights heading Northbound LOW in the sky over Chicago.

At approx. 1:15 a.m. on Thursday March 18th 2010 - I was letting my dog out in the backyard and was staring up at a clear nights sky. The Big Dipper was right above the yard and I was admiring the stars. An object suddenly came into view overhead. It was flying a little higher than a helicopter typically flies around my neighborhood. However, there was no sound - there were no lights - and it had a reddish tint to it. It just quickly floated off to the North. I did seem to hear a small rumble after it had passed out of sight. It almost seemed like it didn't hold form... yet it was in sort of a cigar shaped formation. I have always had interest in UFO's and whatnot. You always hear of flying saucers actually being weather balloons. Well, this could have been just that... it did sort of look like a really big deflated balloon flying very quickly. I don't know what it was. All I know is that it made the hair on my neck stand up!
