Partally Transparent Rectangle that went full transparent

On November 30, 2018, I was traveling on Northwest Highway in Chicago. It was approximately 1:00pm and it was a clear, sunny day. While sitting in traffic, I looked up and ahead through my windshield and saw what I can only describe as a “transparent flag” moving North to South. I looked carefully to make sure it wasn’t a bag or garbage, but it was much too high in the sky for that. It was not a sign being pulled by a small plane, as I would have certainly seen the plane on such a clear day. The object was moving in a very steady, deliberately North to South and a steady pace. Imagine a flag waving in the sky, but it’s transparent, and because it’s waving, the transparency is a little distorted. That’s how I was able to make out its shape. I looked out my driver side window to make sure it wasn’t simply my view through my windshield. It was not. The object was still there. I saw it for a full minute, then it slowly went to what I can only describe as “full transparency”. Again, not a cloud in the sky.
