Large black cube shaped UFO spotted; Columbus, Ohio - Time seemed to stop!

I experienced this with my girl friend at the time, but while she admits to me that this happened it seems that this experience really freaked her out. She asked that I not include her in the story.

I got home from work, stepped out of my car in the driveway when I heard a resonating vibration sound that seemed to drown out everything else. I looked due East across the street and about fifty to one hundred feet above the houses was a large black cube sitting in the air. The craft did not seem to have any lights and it did not move suddenly. All I could do was stare; I thought of taking a picture and the camera was just inside the house, but I couldn’t move. It seemed as if time stopped.

The cube was approximately the size of two homes in my neighborhood which would be about 3000sqft total; the outer texture like a borg cube on Star Trek. The cube began to move slowly toward the south directly above the houses and I started to see a very light gray puff of smoke coming from what had become apparent to me was the rear of the craft. There were three light gray exhaust-like openings where the smoke was coming from, but the smoke very quickly dissipated as the craft moved south. I watched until the craft was too small on the horizon to see any longer; it was weird how no one seemed to be around except the person traveling with me that day until I could no longer hear the resonating vibration sound. Then when the cube was too far to distinguish, cars began passing by like normal and I saw neighbors coming and going; it was as if someone had their fingers in my ears and quickly removed them.

I talked about the experience with the person traveling with me that day and their account was exactly what I had experienced. This happened about four to five years ago and I am still getting goose bumps and every hair on my body is standing up while I type this. I had never had anything like this happen before and have not since although I mentally prepare for the next encounter, hoping I can get a picture or video of this cube.

Background: I was 25 years old at the time of this experience. I am a non-denominational Christian and for the majority of my life never believed anything like this would ever happen to me. I figured most UFO sightings were either drug induced or exaggerations. I have held a full time job all my adult life, enjoy my work and am for the most part a happy person.
