UFO spotted over Toledo, OH, USA. Arc shaped and semi-tranparent.

I was standing outside with my mom and fiance. My mom was in the car already and by the time she got out it was gone. But my fiance saw it first, she looked up and said "What’s that?". I thought she was talking about the big dipper because that's where she was pointing, so I said "That’s the Big Dipper." and she said "no that". Then I saw it looked huge, it was semi-transparent it was arc shape, like this ( but huge. I couldn't judge well its height very well id say 3000ft up. It looked like if sat on the ground it would have been several football fields in length at least. Despite its size it made no sound I could hear, I have good hearing, and so does my fiance. I'm 20yrs old, and she’s 18. It was quiet outside as well.

It was moving slowly compared to normal aircraft. My mom started the car and the car lights came on, I yelled at her to turn the car off and she did but by the time I turned back around it was gone. My fiance says she thought it kind of flapped slightly like a large slow moving bird mind you she agreed on its size, she said "If it was a creature it was still the size of several football fields." The best way I can explain it is if you took a paper plate, cut out the middle leaving only the curved edges, then cut out a quarter section of the edge giving you a rainbow arc shape, now make it see through, like glass. I could even see the stars through it. I kept looking for it hoping to see it again, but I doubt I will it looked pretty set on its course. I didn’t see it flap and she said it wasn’t very noticeable movement, I think since it was transparent the way it moved in front of the stars did give an appearance of it rippling, I think that might have been what she saw. I hope someone else besides us saw it, it was an amazing sight. Even if it didn’t last long.

As for us, I am a 20 year old Male. I have lived in this city most of my life. I have very good vision, and hearing. My Fiance is 18 years old, and has also lived here most of her life. She also has excellent vi! sion and hearing. I'm a normal adult, I spend my time taking care of my dad and hanging out with my friends. My fiance is a senior in High school, and will be graduating this year. We live in a normal city, and I have never seen anything like this as long as I’ve lived here. This is no joke or hoax, if I wanted to make something up id write a book, this was the first site I found to report this so that’s what im doing. Thank you for you time whoever reads this.
