STRANGE SILENT CRAFT SKIRTS MAJOR A.F. BASE!

MY WIFE AND I WERE LOOKING FOR METEORS WHEN SHE SAID I THINK ONES COMING NOW.I LOOKED TO THE WEST, THE DIRECTION SHE WAS LOOKING WHEN I SAW THIS OBJECT IN THE SKY HEADING RIGHT AT US FROM A DISTANCE. AT FIRST I THOUGHT NOTHING ABOUT IT BUT CONTIUED TO OBSERVE IT. IT WAS A DULL OBJECT IN THE DISTANCE AT ABOUT 300 FEET UP. I TOLD HER I DONT THINK IT`S A METEOR BECAUSE IT WAS NOT GLOWING. ABOUT 45 SECONDS LATER WE COULD BOTH SEE IT WAS ACRAFT OF SOME KIND BUT WHAT WE HAD NO IDEA. AT THIS TIME THE OBJECT WAS DIRECTLY OVER HEAD. IT WAS SHAPED LIKE A DIAMOND YOU SEE IN PLAYING CARDS. THE OBJECT HAD NO LIGHTS OF ITS OWN BUT WAS CLEARLY LIGHT UP BY THE LIGHTS OF TOWN. IT MOVED SILENTLY THROUGH SKY. NO NOISE WHAT SO EVER. IT WAS METALIC IN COLOR, WITH WHAT LOOKED LIKE SQUARE OPENINGS ON THE UNDER SIDE WITH WHAR LOOKED LIKR PIPES RUNNING THROUGH THE BOXES.IT WENT IN A STRAIGHT LINE TO THE EAST WITY NO NOISE,LIGHTS ,VAPER TRAILS NOTHING AT ALL. IT WAS SO SILENT THAT ALTHOUGH IT ONLY ABOUT 300 FEET UP, IF WE HAD`NT BEEN LOOKING FOR METEORS WE WOULD NOT HAVE NOTICED IT AT ALL.WE OBSERVED IT HEADING EAST INTILL WE COULD NOT SEE IT AT ALL. I HAVE LIVED HERE ALL MY LIFE AND WE HAVE A MAJOR AIR FORCE BASE ABOUT 3 MILES AWAY. I CAN HONESTLY TELL YOU THAT I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING EVEN CLOSELY RESEMBLING THIS CRAFT "EVER". IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEA WHAT THIS CRAFT IS PLEASE LET US KNOW. THANK YOU.
