|Large bright light above far north Chicago suburbs
Very bright light in the sky over far north Chicago suburbs and western edge of lake Michigan. This very bright lite was first noticed going slow from top of tree to open sky area at a very high altitude. It was viewed moving into open sky area where it stopped. We could verify this by surrounding trees and aircraft. In the following 30-40 seconds its light dimmed to not viewable but several normal military jets could be seen as they had on night flying lights. Entire event seemed to be above 40,000 feet.
The entire event was silent.
