the night of Dec. 13th while watching the meteor shower,
I saw a large, silent, and completely dark object travel
across the sky."
out watching the meteor shower, I noticed a distortion
in the sky. The sky was clear, no clouds in any direction.
I noticed something traveling through the sky from south
to north over our town. I was able to track the object
because the stars would disappear from view as it traveled
in front of them and then would reappear as the object
moved on. The object was completely dark. There were no
lights anywhere on it, at least as seen from my angle
of view on the ground. It made no sound, despite its large
size. I waited for several minutes after it was out of
sight for a delayed sound, but I never heard anything
from it. Its altitude is difficult to determine; however,
it appeared to be at least several thousand feet high.
Its size was about 6 times as large as what a 747 looks
like when it is at 30,000 feet. When the object was near
overhead, I was able to make out its shape against the
sky despite the fact that both sky and object were dark.
It was roughly oval or egg-shaped, but had a pylon or
similiar structure on either side of it. I tracked the
oject for about 15-30 seconds as it moved from about 40
degrees above the southern horizon, overhead and off to
the north until it was obscured from view by the trees
across the street from my house. I did not have enough
time to go into the house to get anyone else to come see
