Huge crescent shaped object, emerged from a distorted area of the sky.

Star watching, observed what appeared to be a "disturbance" in the northeast portion of the clear night sky. The only way to describe it is to say that the sky itself began to move in different directions, like a wave action, and was becoming distorted in a small area. There was quite a bit fast distortion with apparent motion of the stars for about 4-5 seconds. I cannot really describe this distortion with accuracy because I have never seen anything like it.

A huge, in "width", (estimated width of a 727's length from my vantage point) thin, dark, crescent shaped object emerged from the distorted area of the sky headed in a south westerly direction. It had several bulging circular dull yellowish shapes on the bottom of it but they did not appear to be lights or if they were lights they were not on. Each of these circular shapes lined the entire bottom of this object side by side. It displayed no illumination at all, but I could still see that it was a physical object. There was no sound, and I would estimate its altitude to be at or below 1,000 feet above ground level.

I have no true frame of reference for this altitude or size other than the fact that I am an experienced pilot and judge distances constantly with good accuracy. It was obviously not low, rooftop level, and it was equally obvious that it was not at a high altitude or in orbit.

What struck me as being very odd is that as it emerged from the distorted area it was traveling SIDEWAYS, not in the direction of what one would expect from a crescent shaped airfoil such as the B-2 Spirit. It traveled so fast that it was out of sight within 2-3 seconds. It did not appear to climb or descend, just shot away at tremendous speed after appearing from the disturbed area of sky.

I have no logical explanation for this. If I was not star watching just prior to the disturbance occurring, I doubt I would have even seen it at all.

Note: I immediately ran into my house to tell my wife, she looked at my face and said, "What’s wrong? You look like you have just been robbed!"
