Duration: 1-2 minutes
Amber/orange unknown light

Leaving a Saturday night game at White Sox park to go to a parking north of park anf parallel to the Ryan expressway, my daughter and I observed a very bright amber/orange light to the north over the skyline of the downtown area. It seemed to be much larger than a star and was "flickering"....we were walking with the crowd and observing over our left shoulders and could not detect movement of the light...we looked away for a few seconds and when reaching the parking lot and looked again to see the light, it was gone. There were no stars visible as the entire area was covered by a cloud layer and there were no airplanes in that part of the sky at that time.

My daughter said it was similar to the type of light she had seen in the skies over the southwest suburban Chicago area in a fixed triangle formation on the night of July 4th, 2008
