Working out on the veranda, late AM, I was bent over a small landscape planter which is perpendicular to my home at the veranda end. I was pulling some weeds when I then felt like someone was watching me and turned my head ~90 degrees and notice an object hovering quietly behind my left shoulder in my periheral vision. Somewhat startled, I stood up and took closer look, turning toward due South noting its odd shape, distance (300~500ft and at an altitude of about 300ft above a large hill at the adjoiner property to the rear of my property), color, relative size and movement. I continued to bend back down in amazement, I mentally felt like there was an intelligence scanning me, but I heard no sound.

I looked back up in awe to see that the object had vanished.
