Black-Shape simular to a U2-Very large-Silent-Seemed at first to be standing still, but in reality moving slowly.

First I would like to state that I was very dismayed at your statements made on the Sightings Show after a similar sighting was discribed. Two Weeks previous to my sighting I was listening to a local Talk show (The Allen Prell Show [WBAL AM 1090]) A Caller discribed a simular craft sighted around twilight, said to be standing still. The host listened, then quickly moved on with no comment (seeming to Poo Poo the caller). To go on with my discription the craft that I saw was huge. Very low, only one to two hundred feet (a normal plane going this slow would fall from the sky). The craft was SILENT, it made a U-turn in a jerky or phasing manner in little more then its own length. A normal craft would have to make a wide banking turn. The sighting did not last much longer due to the low hight it soon flew out sight. I looked around the parking lot to see if anyone had shared my sighting and found that I was alone (very suprising due to the time of day and the normally busy area where this ocurred). I then entered a shop and told the clerk what happened, he quickly changed the subject (case closed).

((NUFORC Note: A revision was sent by witness: " I am sorry but an error was made in my report. The altitude should have been two to three hundred yards not, one to two hundred feet."))
