|Large cigar craft traveling at high speed and low altitude.
I was walking home form a convenience store on a side street heading north. A motion in the sky caught my attention. I looked up and I saw this craft. It was between 150 to 250 feet long. There were small white lights on it from front to back. My guess is that there were between 10 and 15 lights. They appeared to be moving although I didn't observe the craft long enough to give a description as to how they moved. From my angle of view this object appeared to be cigar in shape. The craft was traveling east to west in a straight line at an altitude of around 500 feet. The speed of this craft was incredible. The only way I can describe it is supersonic. It went from horizon to horizon in 5 to 10 seconds. Trailing behind this craft was a strange vapor trail. It glowed with a sickly white-green color. It reminded me of the Aurora Borealis, the way it seemed to shimmer and move. The intensity of the vapor was very asymmetrical, the most concentration was closest to! the back of the craft and then quickly faded away.
The most unnerving aspect about this whole sighting for me was that this craft made no noise what so ever. I live near Westover Air Force Base, and you can hear the planes WAY before you see them.
