LOW FLYING BLACK OVAL OBJECT WITH GREEN LIGHTS SEEN FLYING BY THE 270S EXIT OFF OF SHADY GROVE RD. IN GAITHERSBURG MARYLAND.

I WAS DRIVING ON SHADY GROVE RD. AT ABOUT 11:45 PM. THE SKY WAS FOGGY AND LIGHT RAIN WAS BEGININNG TO FALL. AS I WAS ABOUT TO EXIT UNTO 270S I SAW, ( & THE PERSON SITTING IN THE PASSENGER SEAT BESIDE ME), AN OVAL BLACK OVAL OBJECT (ABOUT 10FT WIDE) WITH GREEN LIGHTS UNDERNEATH IT FLY PAST AND ABOVE OUR CAR, APPROX. 30FT ABOVE US, AND 15FT IN FRONT OF US. IT SEEMED TO BE CRUISING AT ABOUT 40MPH, BUT AS SOON AS IT GOT IN FRONT OF US (30FT ABOVE, 15 FT IN FRONT) IT EITHER DISAPPEARED OR FLEW SO FAST THAT WE COULD NOT TRACE ITS PATH ANY LONGER. THE TIME LAPSE WAS APPROX. 20 SECONDS. I REMEMBER WHEN IT BECAME VISIBLE TO ME (WHEN I SAW IT CRUISE ABOVE US ) I WAS IN DISBELIEF, AND AS I BEGAN TO ASK THE PASSENGER SITTING BESIDE ME IF HE SAW IT TOO, HE AGREED WITH WHAT I HAD SEEN. I ASKED HIM TO DESCRIBE TO ME WHAT HE SAW, AND HIS DESCRIPTION MATCHED MY VERY OWN VISUAL RECOLLECTION OF THE OBJECT. WHAT WAS SO SURPRISNG ABOUT THE THE OBJECT WAS THAT IT WAS FLYING SO LOW, YET IT MADE NO NOISE, AND THEN SUDDENLY IT EITHER TOOK OFF VERY FAST ( AND QUIETLY) OR JUST SEEM TO DISAPPEAR.
