Shape: Other
Duration:5 minutes
At approximate time given I went outside my front door to observe a flashing stationary object composed of a red and yellow cluster blinking in a sequence of one second intervals over the area of Schiller Park(?) perhaps.

I thought it was a helicopter but it did not move at all and was composed of numerous lights of a bright and prismatic quality unlike a helicopter, it gradually blinked out slowly each a longer time until it just dissipated in the same stationary position.

I do not know what this was and it did not resemble any known craft or natural object I had ever seen. It did not move and it was blinking fairly brightly and then it winked out.
