Something floated by me, no sound, no wind!

Of course everyone asked what i was on, nothing iv'e only told 4-5 people this. Warm summer night, clear skies no wind at all. I was bringing out the garbage out to the ally no one was around, dead quite. I lived on a corner lot at the time so I could see two blocks in either direction. iwas looking up and around at the stars when standing east I caught something in the corner of my eye. About a block to my right five or ten feet over the tree tops which were around tweny five to thirty feet up was this thing.It floated in a absulute straight line past me vary slow 2-3 miles per hour, I was about five feet from the ally. It was lightly ulluminated in a yellowish color, with a black corner to corner stripe about 1.5-2 feet wide. The thing was about the size of a vw bug. There were no edges, seems or anything protruding from it.Ten or so feet long six or so feet wide. The closest thing I can come up with is the movie of Star Trek were they put spock into a cascate and sent him to some planet. Its shape was quit quite simular. I heard no sound from it, no trafic anyware at all, this was on a Sunday night.I watched it go past me straight down the ally and out of site. Istood the wondering what the hell was that, nothing can do that. I looked around to see if maybe someone else was around but nobody was there. I don't know what it was, I do remember I had An erie sense about it. Has anyone else seen this? I know it's weird but the more i've thought of this thing for the past seven years, I have a strange feeling it was some sort of probe, crazy huh. Well thats about it thanks for listening.
