Characteristics: The object changed color
|RAPID MOVING< COLOR CHANGING OBJECT. NORTH TO SOUTH < STRAIGHT UP AND ACROSS
Driving east bound on Butterfeild Rd. (route 56) towards route 59 in Warrenville.
Just before I passed Fermi Lab, just before Eola Rd., I seen a bright white light (orb) in the eastern sky, which was going across the sky from north to the south at a fast rate of speed, crossing OVER the road that I was traveling on, in the distance.
Then, it rapidly broke stright up into the sky, changing to a red color, and fading a SLIGHT bit in color intensity, and twinkled a bit.
Then, it shot across to the north, ACROSS Butterfeild Road ( I was using the road as a point of referance to mark its traveling) at a huge rate of speed, and as it did, it turned white again.
Once it was to the North of Butterfeild Road, it then just kind on bobbled and turned to a twinkling red. From there it was moving eratticly, kind of jumpy, up and down and to the north a bit more.
This object didn't look much higher than the trees in the background, and has I had to turn off of Butterfeild Road, it was just above the tree tops towards the Warrenville/Wheaton city limits. I lost sight of it once I had to turn.
Someone else driving east on Butterfeild Road, HAD to see this as well.
