Location: Wauconda/Lake Zurich (between), IL
Shape: Light
Duration:three minutes
Brilliant glowing red object in northern Illinois moving from the northwest to the south.

Observed the object from a distance. It was north by northwest of my location. It intially appeared to be an aircraft running light. But upon getting closer, I observed that the object was moving to the south in a straight (ballistic) manner.

It was red in color and very brilliant, but its color fluctuated. I was then almost directly below it and it glowed a brilliant red color.

It was overcast, no stars were visible, so it was on my side of the cloud cover.

It then abruptly disappeared.
