Duration:about 3-4 seconds
I was watching the lunar eclipse out by Back Cove from a soccer field. I was alone, and pretty much freezing to death. I saw a shape moving from north to south towards the downtown area which I, at first, thought was a VERY large bird. The craft was completely silent and moved in a perfectly straight line towards the downtown area. It was black and shiny, probably about 50 feet wide, boomarange shaped, and about 100 feet up with no lights (I could see the light from the spotlights around the field shining off of it). The whole sighting lasted about 3 to 4 seconds as it moved quickly, but not fast, towards the downtown area. It seemed to be lined up with the ABC building (which has an electronic bilboard around the top and it the tallest building in the city). I heard a group of others yelling and clapping in the distance and I can only assume that they had seen it as well.
