100 feeet in length blackin color daylight had neighbor see it had a sort of heat wave was 100 feet from it above parents house had tu

i just came out of the VA my parents picked me up and it was a summer morning. When i came home i was in a wheel chair and i told the parents i wanted to sit outside as it was a long time since i was able to be in the sun.. Our neighbor was mowing his lawn >> he was a retired officer from the army. I was soaking in the rays when all of a sudden where i was looking over my parents tri level house was a object hovering just on the other side of there house. I looked at it for a second and i was going to screem out loud so that the neighbor would see what i was seeing but the moment i was going to say saomething he stoped his mower and staired at this object. I said do you see what im seeing ? he responded with yes . the object was about 100 feet in length. it was black in color and was silent. I tried to look for features and i saw tubes protrudeing from the side. i could see there was a sort of heat wave around it at least that was what it looked like. i dont remember any lights but it was as clear as a bell i couldnt have been more then a hundred feet from it.. all of a sudden i watched it go toward portland ore. an in a flash it was gone . No trail no nothing. I asked my neighbor can you please come into my parents house and describe what youve seen cause i didnt want them thinking the VA had given me anything for treatment and i was not seeing what ive just seen. Well thats what i saw and i havent told anyone else but close family im 48 years old now and im not in the best of health so i thought if iam to say anything now it should be soon . i hope this helps you . >>> ((name deleted))
