It was between 3 and 5 am in my backyard when i went to let dog out. I was staring at the constellation Cassiopeia and then turned my attention behind me, to the south west, where a very bright star was...maybe Jupiter, not sure. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw something moving from right to left..which would have been exactly in a southerly direction.

Naturally, automatically i tried to see what it was and soon found a black, boomerang shaped object moving, very steadily across the sky. It had no lights and no visible features and disappeared out of sight, in a very weird kind of fading manner. It is like it flickered out. It was completely silent. The size is very hard to estimate. Since it was black I could not judge the distance or the size. My BEST estimate would be about the length of a football field from end to end. It was moving very straight. My best guess is that it would have been flying directly over the St Johns River, right on the eastern shore, moving southward. Im a few locks from the river, on University blvd W., between San Jose blvd and Powers avenue. A few days later, I went online to see if anything had ever been talked about. I googled "boomerang ufo" and got scared with what I found. This is EXACTLY what it looked like, except it was night time and much darker. The other thing, the most significant was this website: www.cassiopaea.org/cass/boom.htm I imagine it is a coincidence that I was staring at Cassiopaea just prior to this since I stare at constellations all the time and it was the only one visible in that direction at that time of night due to the trees on that side of my yard. But...it strikes me as odd, that I REMEMBER having been staring at that specific constellation and secondly of course, that the only time in my life I have ever seen anything like this (a UFO) was immediately upon turning away from looking at it.

Please, if you can, read what that website says about contact from the constellation.

I have always been agnostic but open to these things. I am a sane, normal, everyday person that never ever thought it would happen to me...as the story goes..as Ive heard people say. If you have questions, I would be happy to answer them. I could go on about the psychological nature of the experience, which in itself, was unique, but I will leave that open if you wish to ask.

Im very glad this is possible to share. This is now a very real thing to me and my desire is great to see us learning what is happening. here is a link to the page and it is the image top center - www.cassiopaea.org/cass/boom.htm
