Hovering still curved boxy 20x25 ft. solid dark object over Atlanta freeway.

In full bright daylight I observed a curved boxy matte black solid object floating stationary in mid air 50 feet above the freeway in midtown Atlanta, GA from my 5th floor window. It was slightly above my eye level, 200 - 400 yards distant.

The object was still. It just appeared and then disappeared without apparent motion 2-3 seconds later.

The object was a fluted boxy cylinder, the side I observed had a matte black or very dark grey finish, with 4 vertically aligned portholes 1/3 down from the slightly curved dome at the top.

The sides were parallel with fluted curved sections each with a shadowed porthole, matte black and indented. Each of the curved panels was 5-6 feet wide, each porthole 3ft wide by 4 ft high.

The object had horizontal ovals 2 by 5 foot at the bottom of each fluted panel, which extended slightly below the bottom plane of the boxy thing, all the way around. Its overall height was about 20 ft. from top to bottom.
