Duration:2 minute
In the morning I looked outside my window to see a white mailbox shaped object with thin black lines and thick red lines floating above

I had just woken up and I was wide awake so this wasn't a dream.

I pushed away the curtains to let some light in. I decided to take a look outside. When I was looking down the street, something caught my eye. In the corner of my eye, there was a white dot. I looked up into the sky to see a figure floating above.

At first I thought was a plane or blimp, but then I made out its shape. It was very odd looking. It was in the shape of a mailbox. Its main color was white.

Even though the figure was far away, it was pretty big. From how far away it was, it was about the shape of a labrador retreiver. But if it was close up, it would be bigger than that.two thin black lines went across it and made an X on the flying object. The thin X overlapped a cross shape on the object with two thick red lines.

It went at the same speed as a plane, but then it swerved sharply to the left. It passed by my window after two minutes.

I have read up about UFO sightings, but none of them described what I saw.

When I saw the object in the sky, I was astonished.
