3 of us have seen this UFO at least 6 times, with an extra friend seeing it tonight. It was more flat in shape, and only omitted white color. It was northeast of the house (direction near North of Chicago). We saw it rise straight up a significant distance at a gradual, but quick speed. Friend said it was moving in a circular motion before telling us to come outside. After moving straight up, it moved left at a 90 degree angle, a few minutes later it moved down in the sky about 25% the distance it first went up. Then it moved a little right, then a little up. Over a 15 minute time period it would get bright, then move. Before going in it faded very quickly and moved again. It was still in the sky when we went inside the house. We have seen it from different locations in the sky as well (directly west). It never omits any color, and will move at sharp angles. No airplane or helicopter noises, nor did it have the colors of those aircrafts. Also, too far away to be a drone or helicopter.
