Huge oval craft seen moving E to W along I-195 in central NJ late one night

Driving home very late one summer night from campus (I was a grad student at the time), I came up onto an overpass of I-195. As I got to the top of the overpass I saw a HUGE oval craft coming slowly from the ESE towards my car, just over the treetops. I'd estimate the size to be at least a football field, but circular and with multi-colored lights on the bottom (no flashing or blinking). I stopped my car at the top of the overpass and just watched it move slowly W, right along I-195, and eventually disappearing over the trees in the distance. What struck me most was that it made absolutely no noise, despite its huge size, and that it seemed to be gliding rather than flying. In other words, it didn't seem to be displacing any air as it moved, and I heard nothing mechanical. It was a warm night and I had my windows open, and I just couldn't believe how silent and graceful this thing was. The only possible explanation I have is that it was a very large, very low-flying blimp, though I saw it pretty clearly and I saw no "cockpit" at the bottom of it and heard no mechanical noises.

((NUFORC Note: If the object was not a commercial blimp, we do not know what it was he witnessed. Date is approximate. PD))
