1. I was near Cobb Park, in Kankakee, Illinois.
2. I was looking at the big dipper.
3. I first thought that it was a jet plane.
4. It looked like a large jet plane with flashing strobes but the colors were (white, red, green, bright but dark blue.) It never made any sound and it was quick! It seemed to be at an extremely high altitude.
My father was a pilot and I have been around planes all my life, including in the military. It looked to be in an excess of 100 thousand feet, and at that altitude it looked to be the width of my thumb, which would seem to make it way larger than any plane that I know of. Plus it was insanely quick.
It traveled from the center of the cup portion of the big dipper which was almost straight above me, in the middle of the night sky straight South 1/3 of the way to the southern horizon in 4 seconds; at which time it just stopped for about 4 seconds. Then it changed direction and started moving to the south-west in a zig-zag pattern. This continued for another 4 seconds.
5. The object came to a stop. A spiral of bright blue-white light and a bright flash, and it simply vanished.
6. The really weird thing, and I'm somewhat embarrassed to say this, it seemed that it was aware of me watching it. It almost seemed to be interactive. Shortly there-after, I felt dizzy.
