Black UFO teases Tallahassee for about 20 minutes with no report,s from police who witness event.

It was a clear dark night out, me and my soon to be wife were saying our good bye's outside my house which was on Springhill rd about 5 miles away from our airport, she was stepping into her car when she stopped and said what is that? i asked what and she pointed up over the top of some tree's,to my amazment i saw what seemed to be a trianguler shape black mass i would say about 150 to 250 feet above the tree line, it was blacker then the sky and it was just motionless, i did not see any type of lights anywhere on it at all, but could make out the shape because again it was darker then the sky. We watched it for about a minute until it began to move southeast at a very low speed, it went about a mile down from us and what was odd is there where a couple streel lights out and this thing reflected the light as if it where a mirror, before i could say anything, she was on the phone with the sherrif's office explaining to them what she had seen, myself of course was telling her to Shhhhhhh, dont say my name, hang up because she was telling them that a UFO just passed over head, that she wants the police to come out and get this thing. I was in shock and embarrased at the same time,she then gave me the phone and the lady officer told me to hold on, i could hear other officers in the back ground on the radio giving a play by play of what this thing was doing,i heard one officer saying OH MY GOD, NO WAY one was being proffesional like a sports announcer,( WE HAVE VISUAL, ITS HEADING TOWARD T.R.A {Tallahassee Regional Airport}COPY THAT then one would say ITS HEADING TOWARDS THE FLEAA MARKET ON CAPITAL CIRCLE, the lady officer was ignoring me on the phone when i asked if everthing is ok, i then heard one of the officer's say DID YOU SEE THAT, then one came back on and said I CANT BELIEVE HOW FAST IT JUST TOOK OFF, one came back on and said it left like a bat out of hell.

just as the officer was trying to hang up on me by saying WE ARE LOOKING INTO IT SIR, an officer came on the radio and said OH LORD ITS BACK, OVER THE FLEA MARKET, the whole time we are in the front yard still looking up but unable to see it because the flea market was about 10 miles away, the line went dead and she finally left to go home, the next day i told my Dad about what had happend and he looked in the newspaper to no avail, there was nothing, later on that day i called the sherrif's office back to see if there were any more details about the sighting, they had no clue to what i was talking about.I did come across some correctional officer's who said they had heard about something that had happend but no exact details, so i guess it never really happend right?
