|black object moving slowly in broad daylight suddenly disappears
My boyfriend and I were looking out of the window (west) toward the airport. We live about 3 miles away. We saw an object that appeared black and round moving very slowly away from the airport. The sun had not set yet, so it was very easy to discern the shape at that point. It was traveling east, so it was coming towards us. Within 200 feet, the object spun, and took on a cigar shape. We ran outside to take a closer look, and by the time we got there, it had disappeared. That only took approximately 5-7 seconds. There were no clouds at the time close by. I have never seen anything like that in my life. I called the airport to report it, and was referred to the national guard station inside the airport. The gentleman I spoke with said that there were no test flights taking place, and asked if I had seen a bird. I am a 36 yr old woman, and I believe I would recognize a bird, as there were many flying at that time. If anyone could give me some insight on this, or possibly saw it, please let me know.
