Very Close Encounter.

Broken fog sky, more like low clouds, approx. 100 foot ceiling in the early morning hour of 2:30am. The morning temperture was perfectly comfortable,absolutely no wind,dry and dead still silents. The object moved slowly through the edge of the fog approx. 1 block to the West going South. I could clearly see small broken glimpses of it but never saw the whole object. After the object got 6 blocks away, it made a 90 degree turn directly North. It passed directly over me at approx. 50 feet. It was moving at walking speed, 200 to 300 feet long, completly smooth surface, cigar shaped, sliver gray in color and a revolving oblong multi-colored light from within. It made absolutely no noise and was unwavering. It was truely a life experience.
