I was getting ready for bed at approximately midnight, and as I was walking to my sliding glass door to lock it I noticed a light reflecting on top of the trees and trailers next door moving quickly.
I live in a stilted house with a raised deck that overlooks my neighbors. I said to myself out loud "what the hell is that."
I thought at first a large bird had flown so close to the glass that it distorted the light, but immediately realized that this was impossible. I opened my door and stepped out onto my deck just in time to see this gigantic flying chevron or wing heading north and ascending at the same time.
The only reason I could tell it was a flying object was because the lights were uniform in size; a distance between them, and in between the lights the actual stars were blocked out.
I felt it was cloaked to blend into the night sky because the lights looked like the surrounding stars. There was no sound and I watched as the object simply disappeared into the night sky.
It looked as if it went through a wormhole or a tear in the fabric of space. I canít quantify the size exactly, but it was larger than 10 747s side by side and relative to the size actually seemed to move slowly as I watched it fly away.
I was so mesmerized that I am not sure exactly how long I watched it, but it could not have been more than 10 or 15 seconds.
I have longed believed that we are not alone in the universe and have always wished to see something, but felt the odds were astronomical, but my excitement at seeing this was so amazing I couldnít wait to tell my husband and son.
I am truly a believer now. I wished I had just stepped out a few seconds or a minute sooner so I could have watched longer or been able to film this phenomenon.
