My husband and I were just walking in our neighborhood and saw something we can not explain.

I am posting this because neither of us can think of who you call and there have to be other people who saw this.

It was over our neighborhood near a large shopping area, but our neighborhood is still darker at night which we guess is why we could see the object.

It was black-ish with what looked like moving/flipping panels that would catch the light as it moved or reflected some light we could not see.

When he first saw it he thought it was birds, but there was no bird sound and then we both realized how large it was.

And that it was diamond shaped.

Plus it was blocking out the sky as it moved.

As it moved away I could hear a hush noise, like snow flakes or a low white noise sound.

He did not pick that up, but we both know my ears are more sensitive and he is getting over a cold.

Also as it moved away it turned into a triangular shape and we could really see the tile-like things flipping.

The object was moving overhead toward the downtown of the city we live outside of, so a straight line following a major interstate seemed to be its path or to pass over the interstate at some point. East-Northeast(emphasis on East).

It left behind a massive white trail similar to what planes can leave behind but huge.

My husband wants me to add that it was not like an exhaust trail, but more like displacement? No other way to explain how it looked or felt but displacement.

Also as it was moving it passed in front of a plane that was much higher up and the object totally blocked the light out of the plane.

I always carry a strong flash light when we walk at night and it did not even reflect off of this object.

Either it was much higher up, which means it was even larger than we think, or it was non-reflective.

We watched it from tonight 7:07 pm until 7:09 when it moved out of our field of vision.

It became a straight line like this but massively thick ______.

It seemed as though one of the diamond's points flattened to make the triangle and then the the front point of the triangle flattened to make a wide line.

If you have ever seen ticker tape or confetti that was how the tile thing looked when they were moving.

Birds do not have exhaust and that trail was not there until the object went by.

No air craft we know of is that quiet, I am a Military Brat and have grown up around planes so I know their sounds.

It can't have been a Stealth because we would have felt that and it would have to have been really low to block the sky in the way it did.

No way we could not have felt it were a low flying Stealth! Also we realized after we saw the trail that in fact there were two other trails spaced evenly and parallel to the one this craft made.
