My wife and I witnessed a low flying, totally silent v shaped craft from our home.

As I was letting my dog out to use the bathroom, I noticed a very bright white light to the east of our home. I called for my wife to ensure I wasn’t just seeing things. It was about 500 yards away and a few hundred feet off of the ground. The light sat motionless for almost 5 minutes.

It then started to travel straight up at a slow rate of speed. It then traveled westbound in our direction. It also began descending as it moved in our direction. It was moving very slowly and leveled out at about the same height I first observed. It flew right over head and continued out of sight. It was a very large almost V shaped craft. It had a very bright white light on the front of the craft. On the back was 5 smaller lights. One on each “wing” tip and then one halfway between the tip and the center ( on each side). Then there was a light in the center of the “V”. On the bottom of the craft was three red lights. The thing that bothered me most was the total lack of noise from this craft. Had it been a jet of helicopter I would have heard it.

I am still at a total loss as to what this thing could have been. It was unsettling to say the least.
