I was at a golf corse called the highlands of Elgin, it was mid morning, close to 11:00 am. I was ready to tie up my ball, when a disc metallic object caught my eye, it was easy to spot as there where no clouds, there was clear skies all round us. I stayed looking at it and decided to take a picture. It stayed standing at an altitude of about 200 ft and after 40 seconds it ascended rapidly until no longer visible. The object was clearly metallic, when I got home and I was able to zoom in the picture you can see that it looks more cylinder like but still have disc shape. I initially thought it was either a ballon or a remote controlled craft, I knew it wasn't a plane. It was to small, to close and flighting to low to be one. Plus I'm use to see airplanes in the area all the time as Elgin is an approaching direction to O'hare international airport. At this point, I can't say exactly what it could be, just that it went up extremely fast and disappear. After that happened my heart was beating really fast.
