Intimidating Looking Red Disk Southwest of O'Hare Airport

UFO activity on 18-May-2013 started at about 9:30 PM. My 10 year old son came in from outside and said he was calling me to see a UFO and he filmed it. I saw the video and said OK, lets go outside again and go UFO hunting. About 10:10PM a large RED UFO I could guess about 4,000ft above traveled from S.E. to N.W. on a slight curvature towards the west.

My son had his video camera and filmed it again. I yelled for my wife and daughter to come out and see it. My wife could only say "Holy Crap!" My daughter said looking at it scared her. It was rather large with some sort of energy emanating around it and silent. I've seen things like this before but this sighting was incredible.

I went outside to have a smoke again around midnight before I was going to go to bed and saw it shoot over again at almost lightning speed very close to the rear of another plane. This thing looks very intimidating for some reason.

I would usually never report something like this but it's still zipping around just southwest of O'Hare airport. It looked to be about 4 times the size of a 727 I saw it fly by.
