Shape: Rectangle
Duration:3 minutes
Elongated rectangular object flying slower than an airplane, but faster than a blimp.

As I was driving south bound on Cicero Avenue near 103rd Street in Oak Lawn, Illinois, I saw a gray elongated retangular gray object about 5 miles further south in the sky moving from the east towards the west. It was about 22.50 degrees above the horizon. It was moving much slower then an airplane, and I thought it could be a blimp, but it moved faster than a blimp, and the ends were not rounded like a blimp. A helicopter could move at that speed, but its shape in no way resembled a helicopter.
