In the Summer of 99 in Chicago I witnessed a UFO up close

My sister, friend and I were on my back patio which was on the top floor of the apartment complex located on Beacon and Lawerence Ave when we noticed a bright chrome flying craft In a far distance which seemed to be hovering above the lake and I we were baffled trying to figure out what it could be because we knew it wasn't any aircraft we've witnessed before but as kids we ignored it after 5 minutes because it just stayed there hoovering. My sister and friend were horsing around but I stayed put by the railing looking at them all of a sudden something made me look up I can't remember what it was but when I did these bright intense lights that I can look directly into without blinking floaters or watering of the eyes was right above me approximately 6 ft and I could see the craft it was so huge that only a quarter of it was visible the rest was stretching over multiple apartment buildings and over mine as well. It was soundless and chrome but I couldn't see a! ny doors or markings on it only the bottom. All I remember was looking down after looking at it for about 2 to 3 mins but it seemed longer then back up and it was gone without a trace. The odd part about not only seeing such a thing was that it was never mentioned nor thought of not even with eachother until years later so Idk whether or not they abducted me and erased my memory. I also have a lump/ ball in my right upper arm that's never been checked.
