8 of us saw a massive, dark object floating low and silently from the beach to the oceans horizon casting a shadow across the water.

There were about 15 of us that rented out a beach house for a pre-wedding bash. 8 of us were on the beach hanging out and all of a sudden things got really quiet. It was an awkwardness where we all stopped and looked at each other, and noticed the night sky got really dark. It's difficult to explain, but we all felt something was odd and stopped our conversations and tried to figure out what was different on that beach. We all saw a huge object hover low above us. It was just above the low lying scattered clouds. It was like an enormously big shadow that hovered from east to west over the ocean. While it floated above us, you could "hear" the silence, it was too quiet, it was like the noise of life stopped. I remember standing there watching the once moonlit sky turn to black and saw the massive shadow float across the sky towards the oceans' horizon. We all knew this was real as we saw the shadow of this object on the oceans' water. The water was ref! lecting the moonlight and when this object floated over, the water turned black. We all watched this object float away onto the horizon. The object was about 400 ft wide and even longer in length, maybe 500-600 ft. It was hard to see its actual shape because it was a shadow over the clouds, but I remember it being like a mammoth sized blimp-shaped object. I have seen other sightings in the desert that I cant explain, but this one really got to me. It's been with me for all these years and I decided to search around and see if anyone else saw any sightings this particular night. I'm glad to see another report was made on this particular night in Newport Beach, CA.
