red orb seen in plainfield.illinois at route 126 and druden

Driving east on route 126 just east of county line I observed a red orb coming at me from the the north.

This object was below the cloud cover and looked like a light from a communication tower. As this object approached I began to slow down to get a better look to see if can identify it. I crossed druden and R126 and observed this object come to a complete stop, hover and than go straight up into the cloud cover. From what I was able to observe it seem to be no larger than a school bus except that it was circular and made no discernible sound,if there was a sound I was not able to hear it over the noise of my truck. This entire episode last no more than 2 minutes and occurred at 3:55 this morning. And as luck would have it I was the only person on the road at that time.
