Round shaped craft with 4 lights spotted over water at Fort De Soto Campground; morphed shape into military grade looking plane.

My friend and I were camping at Fort De Soto. As we were sitting outside by the campfire, a strange mist started to fall (not quite rain, but definitely could be felt on the skin), we found it strange because there was not a cloud above us.

As we were looking towards the sky to try and find where this mist was coming from we noticed what initially looked to be a plane in the sky that had a strange flight pattern heading towards us. It was too far away to see much so we thought that maybe it was a plane in distress. We decided to run past the trees into a field to get a better unobstructed view of it.

At this point it was probably two football fields distance away from us and about as high as a helicopter is when they are searching for people on the ground (it was quite low). A few things became apparent as this was happening…

1. Both my friend and I got goosebumps all over our bodies (including our cheeks) and the hairs on our bodies stood up at the exact same time.

2. It was now close enough to see the shape and what jumped out at us first was that it was round in the front with a cigar shaped tail (definitely unlike any plane we'd ever seen before-it had no wings!)

3. It had absolutely no sound coming from it other than a low hum, and

4. It was blacker in color than the night sky.

It had 4 round white lights around the front which quickly morphed into 1 bright center light and then morphed back into 4 individual lights, again.

It then made a sharp U-turn towards our left, went into some trees for about 5 seconds to where we couldn't see it, and came back out and over us again heading in the opposite direction, only now in an entirely different shape! It was now in the shape of a 4 engine military looking plane (completely different from its original shape).

It proceeded to head in the opposite direction away from us and into the trees where we could no longer get a visual on it.

About 30 seconds later the mist was completely gone. The whole incident probably only took about 2-3 minutes.
