Location: Hays, KS
Shape: Unknown
Duration:2 seconds
Fast moving, shapeless, opaque object w 3-4 dim lights.

While walking the dog around 7 pm, looked up to see an object move from south to north. I watched it for 2-3 seconds.

It had no color – it was black or even opaque, and had 3-4 very dim, shimmering lights. It almost seemed as if those lights were reflections of city lights, and not from the object itself, but rather reflecting off a dark or opaque surface. The shape was indeterminate.

Given the speed and size, I would have guessed it was a small consumer drone, flying a couple hundred feet off the ground, maybe 100 feet from me. But it was completely silent.

It also moved with the speed of a small jet, but again, completely silent. It was out of my sight in 2 seconds, flying to the north.
