UFO seen over St Johns River

I was standing on a dock on the St Johns river watching an approaching thunderstorm when I noticed a shadow against the clouds. As it moved a little closer I could just make out the shape of a triangle or possibly a diamond shaped object. The object was solid black and about 100 feet long moving very slowly heading south towards downtown Jacksonville. It was completly silent and I guess about 80 feet off of the ground. It was probally a quarter mile from my location. I could also make out a couple small dim white lights that seemed to be on the edges. At one point it looked like it momentarily turned on some sort of spotlight for a few seconds and shined it on a large ship docked at the port. It freaked me out and I could not believe what I was seeing. I watched for about a minute then ran inside to get my wife. When I came back outside it had started to rain and I could no longer see the object. This is the first time I have ever seen anything like this. I don't want to tell anyone because they might think I'm a nut case. My wife gave me this funny look. All I could do was stand there with my knees shaking. I actually had trouble sleeping thinking about what I had seen. Very strange and creepy.
