Silent aircraft over Wilmington/Pike Creek.

At about 5 am I observed a white circular light in the southwest sky. At first it looked like a very large, very bright star, but I noticed it was moving. It was so early in the morning that it was still very quiet outside – no birds chirping, no traffic noise. I watched the object move from the southwest to the northeast over the Pike Creek area. It was not a plane or a helicopter. It made absolutely no sound at all, even as it passed over my house. It moved very slowly, and low enough in the sky that as it moved over my house I could see not just the circular white light but also red flashing lights. Many planes fly over this area. I’ve never experienced any aircraft that could do so without making a single sound – as if it was engine-less and just gliding slowly across the sky.
