Location: Chicago (near O'hare airport), IL
Shape: Other
Duration:10 minutes
saw craft heading west, suddenly turning southwest, saw what looked like 2 satellites firing a rocket at craft. Craft wobbled and satellites headed south as what looked like another set of satellites (possibly back-ups?) flew past. I saw a flash and heard a slight explosion in the distance.

The craft was dark, with no lights. It appeared to be very large and high in the atmosphere. The craft was traveling approximately 100 miles an hour. The satellites (or chase planes) seemed like stars, until they started to move toward the craft. Being near an airport, I noticed there was no air traffic at the time. I lost sight of the craft in the horizon but followed the chase planes for about 10 minutes (heading south). There were four chase planes.
