Shape: Circle
Duration:1 min
Silent moving, dark, circular object with reflective bottom moving over houses in Davenport, IA.

I had just pulled into work at 10:15pm and was walking around the front of my car. The moon was full and I was facing West with the moon to my back left slightly. Something passed in front of the moon completely blocking the light for a second as the shadow passed me. This caught my attention and I looked up and to my left.

When I looked up I saw a craft moving due West and completely silent. It appeared to be about a block or so away and 150 feet above the treeline. It was circular on the bottom and seemed to look slightly smaller than a house in size. There were no lights on it, but the bottom seemed to be highly reflective and appeared to be reflecting a few street lights from below. The bottom surface did not appear to be smooth, as the reflections of light moved on it irregularly.

I watched it move slow and silently for about 1 minute before it went behind a building I was close to.

I don't think I would have seen it at all if I had not been in the path of the shadow it cast as it went by. No sound, no lights, completely dark object except for the reflections.
