Location: Chicago, IL
Shape: Oval
Duration:15 mins
Dark oval shaped object over the city.

While sailing north towards Chicago on Lake Michigan we watched a dark shape against a clear sky hover over the shore/building line. It was about two miles away and seemed to change elevation slowly. I watched it with binoculars for several minutes, but could not get a good look at it since we were under sail. It could have been a ballon or a kite, but looked too large to be either. We could see all kinds of planes all around and the planes were easy to identify. This was no plane. We then lost sight of it when we approached the city.
