Location: Oakwood Hills, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes
Object made abrupt U turn at a very high rate of speed

On August 15th, at 3:15 AM, I had just gone to bed. I was lying in bed by my window waiting to see if I could see a meteor. I had a view of the southern sky. I saw a red light approaching from the west headed east at a very high rate of speed. The object then made a very abrupt U turn and headed back west at an even higher rate of speed. The object came back into view and darted around the sky for approximately 30 mins. Each time a plane would fly over the object would go away or not be visible. When the planes had passed the object would come back. This event lasted about 30 minutes.
