UFO over Memphis

We were attending the Mid-South Fair in Memphis, TN, when my wife looked up and saw an object. She pointed it out to me, I saw a dimly lit object, it appeared to be as large as a commercial aircraft that we had seen in the area earlier, as we were in the flight path of Memphis airport. It didn't display any FAA lighting. I could easily judge it's relative size. This object was displaying only a dim gray colored light and it moved quickly from northeast to the Southwest. It covered the sky from where we first saw it to the horizon in less then 15 seconds. I observed several "normal" aircraft in the area at the time of my sighting, including a police helicopter.
