2ft Square , 5 Sided Black Box

About 1986 I had been a student in a junior college at a Lubbock annex , it was around 3:00 in the afternoon.

At the time I lived with my parents south of Lubbock about 4 miles out. A fairley populated residential area.

As I was driving home on County Road 1585 to turn South on South University Ave , I had notice from a mile away a BLACK object that looked like a kite.

As I got closer to my turn I noticed no one flying the "KITE" and once about 100 ft away I could see it to be a Black Box .

Out of curiosity I drove past University Ave and pulled the car over and got out.

There are power line along the road way, as I wathced this object I could see it had only 5 sides, I could see inside the BLACK box.

I observed this box as it floated a few feet over the power lines, decend , reverse direction and do a full circle of the power lines.

Keep in mind, I am directly under this object in broad daylight.

as the object reaccended it then resummed its coarse and continued in a southern direction with a gradual climb.

I rushed to the house to notify my mother but by the time i had gotten there , less than 1/2 mile away , the object was so high and far way she could only see a dot.

I was wondering if anyone else had ever reported seeing anything like this.
