O'Hare UFO sighting in 2006 one of the most famous reported
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of Chicago Tribune

Chicago isnt known as a hotbed of UFO activity, but OHare Airport is the home of one of the most publicized sightings of the last decade. A flying saucer-like object was spotted over Concourse C of the United terminal in November 2006 by pilots, airline management and mechanics. The incident, reported by a Chicago Tribune columnist a few weeks later, noted the object was first seen by a United ramp worker around 4:30 p.m.. After that, a variety of witnesses said the object was dark gray and 6 to 24 feet in diameter. The object was silent and appeared just below the 1,900-foot cloud deck, until shooting off into the clouds and leaving a circular hole shape in the clouds. The Federal Aviation Administration ... dismissed the incident as a weather phenomena. But for Center for UFO Studies Scientific Director Mark Rodeghier, the possible alien craft that appeared in the centers own proverbial backyard remains a mystery worth exploring. Its an unknown object over OHare, and its seen by official personnel, and does United or the FAA take it seriously? Of course not, they have zero interest because UFOs cant exist. But how can you not worry about something hovering over an airport after 9/11? It doesnt make sense, Rodeghier said. Journalist Leslie Kean also wrote about it in her book UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On The Record and talked about in on The Colbert Report with Stephen Colbert in 2010, saying the government should investigate the OHare incident.
