Location: Oswego, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
I was coming out of the Best Buy in Oswego, IL. I put my two kids into their car seats , and looked up to stretch my back and from NW straight above me was a fast , fast moving satellite looking light. I see satellites all of the time but this one moved from NW right above me to South end of the sky and right at the end did a hook to the west and then was gone. It traveled about 70% of the sky in 3 to 4 seconds . No sound. I stood and thought for a second on what I saw. I see satellites, too fast. I see meteors, not as fast and lasted way longer. Not an airplane , way to fast and the pilot would have to pull like 20g’s to make that move at the end. I told my wife, and guys at work. I love to watch the stars but , for being outside of Chicago’s lights, we see a lot for a suburb. But I never saw this. Just wanted to put it in record .
