Location: Chicago, IL
Shape: Light
Duration: 3-4min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
I saw a red lite moving accross the sky very slowly and totally silent.

I was walking my dog at early in the morning hours when I looked up at the sky which was very clear that morning.

I usually look up to look at the stars at some point when im walking my dog. I was standing at the North East corner of 5600 S. Normandy when I saw a red light in the sky which was moving slowly from Southwest to Northeast.

I reside near Midway Airport in Chicago so I see airplanes all the time. But this did not appear to be an airplane because it just appeared to be a RED light which didnt flicker on and off like on an airplane.

Also, there are usually some white lights as well as flickering red lites on airplanes. There was absolutely no engine noise which was odd because at 4am my neighborhood is so quiet you can hear a pin drop.

After staring at this red lite for few minutes my neck got a little sore and i guess i convinced myself that perhaps it was an airplane. I didnt think much of it so i continued home with my dog.

Early this morning I was catching up on reading my Sunday Southtown Newspaper which featured a story about people who saw a simliar lite or lites in the sky. That's when I started to think about what i had saw early sat. morning.

Im a Police Officer and i see lots of strange things in my line of work but they can usually be explained. Im not really sure what i was i saw but since others have obviously come forward I figured I would report what I saw.
