Rectangular gray object glided silently across the night sky and disappeared behind a cloud

A small group of friends sitting around an outdoor campfire witnessed a large gray rectangular/columnar object glide slowly across the night sky. It was about 21:00 and there was a full moon. The UFO was seen in the west and toward in a southwesterly direction. Several witnesses saw lights around the perimeter - I could only see that it appeared to be "backlit." The night had been cloudy but was clear when the object was seen. As it moved to the south, it disappeared behind/into a cloud and was not seen again.
