Black rotating cross witnessed by 6 people above Tufts University Campus.

All 6 of us (adults age 28 - 55) were talking a walk on Tufts University Campus on Saturday evening June 23. Around 8:30 pm, we stopped at the belvedere near the Central Heating Plant to look at the Boston skyline.

As we were watching a Lufthansa Airbus 340 climbing out of Logan to the North of us, we all noticed almost overhead a peculiar black object that at first looked like a delta wing aircraft, with no lights and silent. It was going from West to East at an altitude of no more than 2,000 feet (It flew under the broken cloud cover). I estimate speed at perhaps 100 MPH. As it passed overhead the object appeared to be changing shape into a cross and rotating around its center. It was the size of a quarter held at arms'lenght.

After 2-3 minutes of watching it, we lost it from view in the darker eastern sky.
