Shape: Disk
Duration:15 minutes
I just pulled in my driveway from getting coffee, and I noticed this bright star to the southeast of my house. It was a bright, rotating, pulsing, white and red light. At first when I saw it, it was just white. Then, after I watched it for a couple minutes, the red started, too.

It was towards Midway airport. This was not a plane. I've worked at O'hare airport for over 10 years, so I'm familiar with airplanes.

I took a picture with my cellphone. It was far away. However, I knew if I could get it, I could crop the picture. Then, I could see it better. And, I got it.
