Location: Westmont, IL
Shape: Rectangle
Duration:15 to 20 seconds
Reddish-gray rectangular object crossing sky, daytime sighting.

At approximately 15:05 on 11/25/08, I was on my way to work traveling East on 63rd Street between Fairview Avenue and Florence Drive in Westmont, Illinois. I looked up and saw what I thought was a sign pulled behind an airplane. It was rectangular, reddish-gray in color and moving slowly North to South about 40 to 45 degrees above the horizon.

I pulled out my cell phone to get a picture, while glancing up at the object. It moved behind the large Westmont water tower on the South side of the road and never came back out. As I drove further East on 63rd and came even with the water tower, I looked for the object as much as I could without having an accident, but it was gone. The experience lasted approximately 15 to 20 seconds. The weather was clear and sunny with some very sparse cloud cover.

I have never seen any kind of UFO before.
