Duration:a few seconds
A large, black object crossed a country road at night with two huge, round lights at the back of it.

I was driving through Norfolk, NY, around 11 o'clock and was in an area of farm fields. It was really dark out. All of a sudden something big and even blacker than the night sky came across the road in front of me from my right. My headlights didn't light it up or anything. There were no lights around it so it was just this huge, black thing. I was so startled I said, "Whoa!" and momentarily crossed the dividing line in the road while looking at it. Believe me, I have never done that in my life! As I kept looking out my side window I could make out two huge lights at the back of the black thing. I couldn't get a sense of the shape of this object against the night sky, but it was huge, low, moving steadily, and only had these two huge, round lights on the back end. They had to be the size of plate glass windows. I was really confused because I didn't understand why, if this was a plane, it didn't have the usual lights on it, and why it was flying so darned low. No lights but those two huge lights at the back. I've thought and thought about that night so many times and the thing that really stays with me is the fact that there was no glare from those lights. Even a street light has a glow around it and lights on houses have a kind of glow around them from the distance. These lights didn't have a glow like they were an exhaust. You couldn't see anything but bright white, and the way they were lit made no sense. Why didn't they glow, you know? If it was a plane and those were the tail ends where engine heat should be coming out of, why didn't it appear to be doing that? And why was there no sound? A plane that low would have been noisy. I didn't even notice the thing until it was right overhead in front of me. I've looked online at lots of airplanes since I saw that and I haven't seen the back end of one plane that looks like that thing did. I would have pulled over that night to look at it, but there were two cars a ways behind me and there was not enough space for me ! to get s afely off the road.
