Speefy fat disk shaped craft spotted against a cloudy sky.

It was really cloudy out and pretty dark dark outside when I looked up and there it was. The object zigzagged up and down before moving behind some trees, out of vision.

I had my camera in my hand because I had just come from taking pictures of my car. I threw the lens cap off and snapped three shots. The first two missed and my girlfriend kept yelling, 'it's behind the trees!' I ran down the street holding the camera up in the air and managed to capture one shot.

When I spotted it close to the building, it was definitely shaped like a very fat, round disk. Appeared to glow on the underside, but not quite like a light. It glowed like molten hot metal, but with silver, not red.. Not sure how else to explain it.

It looks like there's some sort of a tail in the picture, but I didn't see anything like that when it was above us and the building, so I'm not sure if that's really there or just the way the camera picked up the lighting..

The flight went up and down like a zigzag and made no sounds. It went from above our heads and headed west.. It was low flying and as quickly as it appeared, it was gone.
