Shape: Diamond
Duration:60 sec.
A large bright mettalic red-orange diamond shaped craft appeared and dissapered making no noise.

I had gone outside to take my dog out before i went to bed,there were several people in the parking lot at my appartment complex.There were also people outside at the appartment complex across the street.I went down the steps and led my dog about 3 feet into the grass in frount of the building.I had been out for about 30 or 40 seconds when i first saw the started over the horizon behind the appartment buildings across the street,then it advanced at a very high speed at an angle coming toward me untill it was as close as the power poles across the street and then it dissapered.the object was of a diamond shape and rather large.It was very bright mettalic red-orange in color,and made no noise.the duration of the sighting was about 60 seconds the i went inside to get my husband so he could see it.we came back out about 40 seconds later and it was gone.I don't know if anyone else saw it because it happend so quickly but i can't rationally explane what i saw as an airplane or hellicopter.There are frequently aircraft around due to the fact that we live about 20 min.away from the airport but this was not like anything that i had ever seen.
