A semi-circled shaped object w/ about 6 or 7 lights was moving very rapidly through the sky and was making no sound.

"On august 13, 2002 at appx. 11:30 pm my boyfriend and I were walking out of his house to come to mine. He was on the sidewalk and saw a huge bright light and told me to come over there. As soon as I walked over I saw an object that looked semi-circle and had about 6 or 7 yellow lights that shined down onto the tree tops. We stood there and stared at it for about 15 seconds. WE listened for a sound like a plane but heard nothing. It was moving very rapidly through the sky. It was moving west to east and never changed direction. The top of the trees are about 60 feet high and the object was about 20 feet above that. The spand of the object was appx. the size of a football field. As it was going east it was moving towards the back of his house and was hard to a matter of seconds it was gone."
