Duration:>2 minutes
Saw a black stationary orb in the sky in Elgin.

I was at work and was told to go out and grab shopping carts. We had a storm coming and there were big dark clouds in the sky but it was still daylight out, so what I saw was clear. As I was grabbing a cart from the very back reaches of the parking lot, I looked up and saw in the sky a black sphere-like object in the distance. It wasn't moving up or down, further or closer it was completely still. And it was right by a rain cloud,so it couldn't have been a helicopter or plane. It was close enough where I could tell it was only a black object that was completely stationary. If it were anything else I was close enough to tell any details that would make it anything different. I stood and stared at it for a minute or two, but I was working so I couldn't watch it for any longer so I'm not sure if it disappeared or flew away. For all I know, it's still there. I doubt it, though I will make another report if I see it again soon.
