Location: Pikeville, KY
Shape: Rectangle
Duration:7 minutes
The object moved at a relatively slow steady pace from east to west with lights at the front and the back completely silent and huge.

It was dark but clear. I was using 12x binoculars and still could not clearly see any detail in the craft except that it was without wings and completely silent. It was as big as a commercial plane but flying just above the mountain top. The object had ligts like an aircraft but they did not blink. The lights in front were red and orange as were the lights in the back. The lights and the outline of the object gave the impression of being a helicopter because of the speed and the strange position of the lights but it was huge and low and silent. The object travelled at steady speed from east to west and my wife and I watched it fly out of sight. It was so slow that I had time to run in the house and get my binoculars. I see a lot of military aircraft and medical helicopters but I have never seen anything like this. It is impossible for me to accurately describe the object because it was too big and jet black. Except for the lights it just seemed to blot out the stars as it moved.
