Location: Chicago, IL
Shape: Unknown
Duration:60 seconds
Burning-like object appears and quickly ascends over Lake Michigan in north part of Chicago

The small object which at first I thought was a large piece of burning cardboard appeared to take off from the alley across the street from us, or a neighboring rooftop. It ascended quickly and passed in front of a midrise building 2 blocks to the south, so I'm sure others must have seen it.

I watched out our front window for about 60 seconds as the object continued moving east toward Lake Michigan. It turned into a small dot, out of my range of vision, then disappeared.
