Duration:2 min.
At approxamitly 5:48 this morning I was getting ready to get into my car and I happened to look up in the sky to see a shooting star. As I lingered to watch its tail die out a very, very, very large flying what would one call it, a craft I quess passed effortlesly with not a sound directly over head. It appeared to be a sting of triangelish lights conected together at a perfect diagonal. connected to the lights were long tubes at different lenghts almost reminisent of a revolver chamber on a pistol. I would surmise the object to be about the width of 30 jet size airplanes and an undetermined length. It was hard to comprehend anything that size flying. It did not huver, it did not speed off it simply floated effortlessly towards the east and dissapeared. I have never seen anything remotley like this and can not imagine anyone creating something that looked like this. I will never forget it as long as I live, and feel very fortunate to have seen it. I only hope others did as well.
