Seeing this object so clearly and not able to describe it as I would like to convey what we were seeing is difficult.

I was standing in my driveway and happened to look up.An object was stationary in the sky over some treetops. It was irregular shaped, Not smooth or like pictures I observed in the past. If it were, I could explain it better,but it was so different I have trouble describing it better. The object did not show any lights,although it was clearly visable.It seemed to create a visable illumination that did nor radiate away from itself.It did no glow,but the material composition made it clearly visable.It was not metallic.More like semi gloss smooth(not the shape) graphite.It seemed to be made in layers.Small flat sections wit larger sections above and then smaller sections above. about four levels I cant give you its size,or altitude.Perhaps 500 feet above the tree tops. It was large no noise and did not move.From its altitude(a guess and in realation to the size of the trees, I would guess it was 75 t0 100 ft. long.Iwent and got my wife son, and three neighbors to observe the phenomenom. we were astonished. It was in a residential district not well lit.The area was in a small area of L.A. near Glendale Ca. The object just seemed to dissapear all at once. not speed away. Just became gone. I called griffith park observitory but they had no inquiries. I just let it go. It was so strangely shaped with nolight radiating from it I t was hard explain. The reason I have not reported before is because I had no other proof of the sighting than us six people.I had been inL.A. for years,and was used to the goodyear blimps helicopters etc. This thing made no noise or movement and it vanished.The Shape and composition are unlike any Ihave heard about before.Any reports like mine? How could six people in los Angerles see the object so clearly and it dissapears without any hoop La from neighbors, or the media?
