Location: Palm Springs, CA
Shape: Oval
Duration:2 minutes
Large dimly lit mass crossed the sky steadily and silently.

My husband and I were on vacation, lying on lounge chairs outside the house we were renting, looking up at the starry night, we saw a huge oval shaped mass the length of many football fields and extremely high in the sky, crossed steadily over us across the night sky. The mass was very dimly lit and almost translucent.

There were several small planes flying by in the air at the same time so we could see how much higher and bigger this mass was compared to a plane.

It was silent and illuminated on the side that was leading it across the sky. Not beams of light coming from it but just illuminated. It moved quickly and steadily until it was out of our view. We continued to ask each other the whole two minutes or so that it crossed over, "What the heck is THAT?" It was too big and too shaped to be a cloud and moved too fast.

My husband and I didn't even believe in UFOs but now that we have seen that together, we're extremely curious and are thankful that we both saw it. We'd love help with an explanation maybe specific to that area since we are not from there.
