Weird shaped unidentified flying object in Belvidere Illinois

We were driving down Olson when I spotted something unusual in the sky. It didn't seem like it was really high up because it looked pretty big so I assumed it was close. It was going in the direction that we were driving but it was ahead of us.

I ask the driver what he thought it was, he was paying more attention to the road so he took a quick glimpse and said it's a plane. I was not convinced. As we kept driving it stopped and stayed in one spot for a couple seconds and then we passed it.

It then turned around and went back to the direction that it came from. That is when I saw it's shape more and I knew it was not an airplane. I told the driver once again, look at that, that is not an airplane.

We were at the intersection so we made it to a stop sign and then he looked back. He told me to try to get a picture. It took me a couple tries until I could get a decent picture. A lot of the pictures came out as a blur or lights. But one of them were good enough to notice that it was no plane.
