Cloudy ring like figure moving puickly through the late afternoon sky in Berwyn, Illinois.

I am not a believer in any "Alien/UFO" stuff but, I live in Chicago, Illinois and on July 3rd, 2010 (yesterday) the ring that was seen at point 0:44-0:59 is the SAME EXACT cloud looking ring I and many others in my family spotted in the sky right over Berwyn, Illinois.

Now&#65279; many were quick to jump to the possibility that is was smoke forming the shape of a ring due to the fireworks that were being blown off. However, I beg to differ because this ring shaped object was PERFECTLY round.

Also the ring was moving at a very fast pace. The wind was very very still at the time. Since this occurance I am interested in&#65279; what it was or may be. Like I said before, I did strongly not believe in Aliens/UFO's.

But this time I was very quick to doubt it was smoke from the fireworks. The reason being is when someone makes a ring of smoke with their cigarette the ring will gradually get bigger and rise. Whereas this CLOUDY like ring was moving across the sky.
