Location: Schaumburg, IL
Shape: Light
unusual light in sky slow moving almost comes to a stop and slowly moves on

My best description of the object would be it was similar in shape to a planet it was a constant brightness a whitish color . at first we thought it was a very large satellite it's motion was constant at first similar to a satellite not fast at all but then it started to slow down and slightly curve it's path. this when I really rose to attention then it came to an almost complete stop and slghtly curved back and then slowly continued on it's path. It was not a visible craft in any form but looked like a star or planet that could move it was completley silent which also made it unusual seeing we are near O'hare and I though it maybe a plane but there were no flashing green and red lights it was circular and made no noise like the planes do we see planes in our yard at 1000 ft and 30,000 ft all the time i this was not even close to the way they look. It was not a satellite because it slowed down and curved we seee them quite often and they are much smalle! r and have a constant path across the sky. My wife and I are not ufo believers and are not telling our neighbors because I always said I thought UFO's are bullshit and dont want to look stupid but I googled how to report ufos and here i am I wanted to report in hopes somebody else in our schaumburg,IL area saw it.
