UFO Sighting in Chicago, Illinois on 2017-07-04 00:00:00 - Observed bright orange solid light traveling south. it slowed down almost to a hover then regained speed
I had just arrived home from work, in front of my house at about 12:45am on july 4, 2017. i was carrying a suitbag and case in my hands. as i walked from my car toward my house i suddenly saw what i first thought was an airplane flying south. it appeared from behind the neighbor's roof and looked to be the distance of possibly 2 to 6 blocks west of me but i didnt know how to estimate the altitude. i immediately noticed something strange..As the object had no blinking lights, only a bright orange glow to it that never changed intensity or color. the light looked spherical. it made no sound. i dropped my suitbag and case on the sidewalk and turned back to my car to grab my eyeglasses which were on the passenger seat. i closed the car door and put my glasses on. the object was on the same flight path in a straight line going south but it slowed down. it didn't lose altitude or move up or down..It just slowed almost to a hover but then it slowly regained speed again and continued in a perfectly straight line south. i had snapped a photo with my cellphone. then i proceeded to turn on the video camera on the phone. i continued to photograph the object for about another half minute when it seemed to make a right- angle turn west and move due west. as it continued west it faded out within 15 seconds and i couldnt see it anymore.
