I thought I would share but wasn't sure if it was a UFO.

I was moving cars in the driveway when I noticed it between 2 trees. It changed different shapes from saucer shape to circle shape. It was as big as a moon. I couldn't locate the moon that night. I do see aircraft flying in the area almost everyday between those 2 trees. This object was not moving. I have never seen the moon ever between those 2 trees in my whole life. It was changing shape and disappeared. It then reappeared so I took my camera out and took 4 photos of the object. It then disappeared and took 2 more photos of the area it was located. My only explanation was that maybe a very thin cloud that I could barely see had frozen water inside the cloud and the moon that I could not locate was glaring moon light off of it. There wasn't any wind almost and maybe the wind was moving about 12 MPH. The reason why I think it wasn't frozen water in a thin cloud was why would it form a perfect circle. I did also take a photo of a aircraft flying in that direction near it. I never see aircraft flying in that direction in that location in the sky. I waited about 15 minutes outside to see if it would come back but clouds that where coming in ended up covering the whole sky. I was gonna take a drive to see if I can locate the moon but the clouds came in super thick. I have photos of it changing shape in a video on Youtube. I titled it UFO October 22, 2015 Oak Lawn Illinois. I titled it that but maybe shouldn't of because I wasn't sure if it really was a UFO. It was very quiet on the rhodes at 12:31 midnight having maybe only seen 1 to 3 cars drive down the street between 12:27 midnight to 12:52 midnight. It was hours after the Chicago Cubs got eliminated from the playoffs. If it happened 32 minutes earlier it would have still have been Marty Mcfly day. I would send photos but I'm not sure what email you all have to send them too.
