UFO in Midway Airport area July 2010

Last night on 07-07-10 at about 9:30 p.m., seven other people and I witnessed a fireball looking object in the sky. We live in the Chicago Midway airport area so at first it seemed like an airplane that was on fire. Suddenly it stopped, it went backwards, then side to side and was hovering for a few minutes, to the point where a plane flew approximately 100 feet below it. We could hear the plane as it flew by but there was no sound coming out of the fireball looking object, even as it disappeared into the clouds. When I saw it go backwards I ran inside my house to get the camcorder, while my family stayed outside watching it. As soon as my husband tried recording, it disappeared into the clouds. The entire experience was about five minutes long. Soon after it disappeared we heard helicopters near Cicero Avenue and the expressway I-55.
