Shiny Object near Aurora, IL

I came home from work at approx. 5 pm. Walked to back of house (facing north) to talk to wife and kids. They were outback on this partly sunny day.

I was talking with her and looked up to the slight west (about 3 miles west of RT. 59) and saw a very shiny object stationary and silent in the air about level with the clouds, which were spuratic in the sky. This shiny object was hovering in an open area of the sky in between two sets of clouds.

I thought that it was very odd, so I staired at object for about 20-30 seconds, when I turned to my wife to continue the conversation. I interrupted our chat to tell her to look up, and when we did, the object was gone.

I did not notice any trails that it may have left, and all I can say for sure is that it was about 1000 feet up and it was probably silver and round in shape.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and we found him to be quite serious-minded and credible. We suspect that he is a very good witness. PD))
