Reported: 4/22/2016 3:16:17 AM 03:16
Posted: 4/22/2016
Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Teardrop
Duration:40-50 seconds
Tear/seed shaped flat black object hovering and moving slowly silent with no lights, it seemed to camouflage itself against the sky.

My boyfriend and I stepped onto our back porch, and I looked up and saw a solid black, tear shaped, almost hairy looking (I know that sounds weird but it wasn't shiny and there seemed to be something around it that gave it a spiky looking texture), object, headed 150 degrees SE of Seattle at around 3,500-4,000 ft. It moved slowly, almost a floating motion with absolutely no sound, no lights.

The moon was almost full, half of the sky was clear and the other half had low incoming clouds. The object flew through the direct moonlight but there was no moonlight reflection on the object as if the object surface was a flat black.

The object seemed to slow down and hover as it reached a large group of clouds and became harder and harder to see, its outline became vague and soon, I could no longer spot it. It seemed to camouflage itself against sky. When it was against the clear sky, it was impossible to see until it was in the moonlight. It ended up kind of blending with the clouds it approached. Size wise, it was smaller than a 747, but larger than a minivan.

My boyfriend didn't have his glasses on so he did not see the details I did but he did see its movement.
