Diamond Shape taking samples from Rock River

Within the first week of January 2000, I was traveling West on Spring Creek Rd about half a mile from the Rock River. I noticed a grey diamond shaped object hovering at an angle over the river at Auburn Street Bridge. I could not take my eyes off of it. It moved and came toward me, other cars pulled over. I drove toward it until it was above me and slowed down. It stayed with me about 30 seconds and only my car. I placed my head out the window looking up at it about 100 feet above me. The size was a bit smaller than my car and no sound. It then sped back to the river quicker than I could get there, angled again with a beam of light to the river and then came back toward me again. It flew over Eisenhower School and was gone. I tried to get back quickly but never found it. When it was above me, I grabbed my phone but it had shut down and could not use it to take a picture. So disappointing!!!
