November 2001 Dallas, Texas UFO sighting downtown

On the date in question, of which I am certain because I entered in my desk calendar, I am not certain of the time. But, I think it was about an hour or so after lunch because the remainder of the day on my calendar is leave (I remained at the office, I just could not perform anymore duties because I was a bit shaken). The weather was overcast and it had been raining a bit.

As I was looking out of my office window (building located downtown ), I saw a flat dark, grayish object appear just above the buildings about 4 blocks N. of my office bldg. The object was flat, with an odd sort of rectangular shape. It definitely was not a helicopter. It flew very close to one particular highrise, a building I usually watch because it frequently has window-washers cleaning the windows, and it is one of just a few buildings in the center of the view from my office building.

At first I thougt the object was a plane. Then I thought I was seeing things, because it did not fly by, but rather just circled the building in question. It then hovered near the top of the building as if it were trying to survey it. It did this long enough for me to stare for several seconds, then to get my glasses and stare for several more seconds. The object the quickly speed off approximately due north.
