Electrical interference (TV/lights), massive, fast-moving shadow covering whole yard and more. Silent.

At home that afternoon my brother and I were disturbed by some electrical interference. Our flourescent and incandescent lights dimmed, our TV displayed odd patterns, and the A/C stopped for a moment. I looked outside into the yard to see a gigantic shadow with a curved leading edge race across the ground outside in the backyard. I ran outside to see if I could see anything but there was nothing visible (our yard is partly covered by trees). We heard no sounds out of the ordinary, felt no motion, and do not live in a flight path (in fact, the shadow moved the wrong direction for our local aiport's typical takeoff or landing routes). The shadow moved an an incredible speed. As it passed over the whole yard became dark. Please contact me if & only if this corroborates other reports. Thank you for your time.
