|Well not as brilliant as the previous sightings in Tinley park that I have witnessed before, but aroung 9:55pm Sat night we were swimming in my friends pool looking for satellites and this particular one WAS NOT a satellite. From about 45 degrees south way higher than airplanes can fly, about satellite altitude this white light that looked like a satellite came out of no where and moved so fast north it could not have been a satellite. From south 45degrees to north 45degrees in about 7 seconds.
I have never seen anything move that fast before. No tail, just a white light about the size of a star moving at incredible speeds. If I where to guess, probably about 3 to 4000 miles an hour.
I have seen satellites plenty of times before and this thing was like a corvette compared to a bicycle. This was 1 yeard to the day i think of a cigar shaped craft seen over Tinley and Oakforest at around 2pm in the afternoon.
I have been working with a UFO investigator and explained this one to him, there is no explanation on the speed, maybe shuttle? Their planned route was not over N. American last night, and I don't even think that the shuttle has that type of speed without thrusters involved that would be dictated by a trail of some sort.
