Shape: Diamond
Duration:5 seconds
Diamon/shevron/stingray shaped silent object over Kemer, Turkey

The object appeared over the beach of Kemer, Turkey at the Mediterraian Sea at 22:48. The sky was clear with lots of stars. The Antalya airport is located within about 50 miles of the site. There were numerous planes seen in mid air approaching and leaving the airport mostly in SE/NW direction. None of the planes approached the beach where we were located. The object, however flew directly over us and disappeared behind our hotel. It flew from SE to NW, over the sea and then over land, where its view was obstructed by buildings.

Description: Its shape is hard to define: it looked like a diamond or a stingray while somewhat flat at the front. At some point it seemed to be made of soft fabric and its sides seemed to slowly move up or down, as if slowly changing shape. The bottom part had numerous lights that were much dimmer than the stars in the sky. I would estimate the size as that of or larger than Boeing 747. But with the shape closer to B2 bomber it had to be quite big. No wings, however. Can't say if it was a single object or a formation - did not have a chance to see it long enough. Speed: approximately 250 mph. Height: I estimate 900 feet. Again these are only estimates but if this were a 747 or 777 it would be possibe to see detail of the fuselage, windows, side marks etc at this height. The object made no sound at all, or at least anything that could be heard above the noise of the surf. It did not occur to me to report it to local autorities. My family and I saw the object very clearly, however, if not for my daughter, I would have never noticed it.
