We were on the roof (3rd floor) of our building in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago. We often watch planes headed to or from O'Hare Airport from here and we both remarked that there hadn't been any planes flying over us tonight. About 11pm, as we were getting ready to go back inside, we looked up and both said, 'there's a plane.' But it wasn't - didn't have plane lights or shape. I joked and said 'it's a UFO,' and we both thought that maybe it's just a bunch of balloons, but this object, which was about as high up as planes not coming in for an immediate landing usually are as they go over our place, kept to pretty much a straight path, that originated southeast of us and proceeded in a northwest direction, without wavering in direction at all. It also didn't seem to go any higher or lower. It was dark, but there was a faint light to it and it was a somewhat square or oval shape. The light on it was not colored or chaining at all. After watching it for about two minutes we lost sight of it as it got lost in the clouds (and dark).
