Black drone shaped UFO flies slowly over Chicago and ORD on June 18, 2016.

We were on our balcony looking East, when the UFO appeared. At first it looked a bit like a helicopter from the fron, but as it slowly turned South, we saw basically a round shape with 4 lights. It moved slowly (like a helicopter, too slow for a plane).

I run to the roof deck of our high rise building and watched it there for about 15 minutes. It kept rising and did a slow arc Westbound over the city and across O'Hare airspace.

I'm guessing at the end it was maybe 15km high and barely visible as it was just a dot until it disappeared into the clouds. This was not a plane, nor a helicopter nor a balloon. If anything it looked more like a drone but a giant one (the size of an airliner).

Since it went straight through ORD airspace it must have been tracked by some radar. Its color was black.
