Duration: 30 seconds
Circular, silver stationary object over Chicago close to Ohare Airport at high altitude.

It was a sunny, but partially cloudy day. I was outdoors by our condo swimming pool. I looked up an next to a cloud saw a silvery, circular object. Perfectly circle. I was looking up directly almost and was seeing the bottom of whatever I was looking at. It was about the size of an erasure on the end of a pencil. It was shinny and circular. I could not see the top. I assume it was pretty high up. I live by the lake michigan close to Cubs park. Aircraft to Ohare airport frequently pass through this location, approximately, when landing. I shifted position in my lounge to be more comfortable, looked up and it was gone. Don't know if it was a weather balloon, satellite, ufo disk or what. Occasionally I see balloons floating at low altitudes from here, after they have been lost. This wasn't moving when I looked at it. More or less stationary. And again perfectly circular and silvery metalic.
