Location: Tinley Park, IL
Shape: Light
Duration: 2-3 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Light over Tinley Park. No sound or running lights

Strange light in skies over Tinley Park. Light moved from North to south at a seemingly slow rate of speed. No sound what so ever came from the light. I am writing this as I have just come inside and trying to remember everything. Lots of plane activity in skies. Passed between what I think was Venus and the very bright moon. Skies are very clear.

NO running lights were visible which is what caught my attention. I saw a very bright light coming across the sky. It passed directly over and in front of me. Almost looked like there were two afterburners on back side but again, no sound at all. It never changed pace. Thought I would see running lights from the back but nothing. I followed it until I could no longer see the light. 2-3 mins I think.

I had two dogs out side and no reaction from them as far as I could tell. I first thought the object was very high in the sky because I couldn't see the running lights. As it passed over me, I got the feeling it was much lower than I first thought. I was looking to see if I could make out any kind of wing or fuselage but I could not. It was clearly a craft of some kind as there was a discernable distance between the initial single light and the back "after burner"lights. Once past me the single light was gone/blocked and the "after burner" lights appeared. No flame from them...that was just my impression of what I saw. Saw 2 lights on back. These seemed like a softer glowing orange. The Single light was a brighter yellow/whiteish light. I went outside at 6:50pm to let my dogs out.
