ufo spotted over o'hare airport

While working the night shift, at the airport, this was an event that actually took place. I would start by saying, someone, or a few people in the surrounding area, had to have witnessed the same event. In the local areas, there's the Hilton hotel, where someone possibly, may have been looking out of the window. Tower for air traffic control and the everyday travelers, some other eyewitness, to the event.

My job includes outside work. while I had noticed how clear it was that night, It was going through my mind, is that the big dipper or little dipper. At the left corner of my eye, I spotted this bright light, yellow/green in color.

The object was round from the bottom, flat, slowly moving over the top of the terminal building, near what was then called, the round house.The object was smaller then the round house, mybe by a half size. Could it have been curious, about the shape, looking like it's own. This was a restaurant, with coffee shops etc.,on the top level.

The object was below the main tower, no more then a few hundred feet above the terminal bldg.. As it slowly moved, from where I was standing, towards the center of what airline employees call the ally, ramp area for taxing aircraft to the gates, I'm thinking, no noise is being made, I'm trying to make out some detail, there's to much of a glow. Then it was directly over my head, it stop for no more then one second, then it shot out towards my right. It moved so fast, you could see an after glow, tailing behind. If you were to count, one, two,by three, it was over the trees, that's beyond the border of the airport.

My next thought, I need to get this down on paper. I ran into one of readyrooms, area for ground services, found a sheet of paper, and wrote down everything I had remembered. One thing I need to mention, a few days before, I heard on the radio, there was something that was picked-up on radar, eariler that week.

The explanation, one of the facility bldgs. being picked-up, it was nothing to be worried about. This was no dought, a cover-up.

As I mentioned before, someone else had to have seen it as well. I would hope, someone could come foreward, and varify my story, it's the honest to GOD true event that took place.

I was told, say nothing, people will thing, your crazy. This was from a friend, who did not believe me. I believe the facts and the truth, need to be told.
