|Military or other?
While serving as an Army officer, I stepped out to my car. As I was opening the door, a hugh aircraft came overhead. Probably at least a football field in length. It passed overhead and out of sight within a second or two and made no sound.
I thought it was just me, but my neighbor across the street had walked outside at the same time I did. We looked at each other and I asked "did you see that" and the said very loudly a resounding "yes."
What was also odd was that it made no sound, gave no vapor or other trail. I've served as a paratrooper jumping out of prop and jet aircraft, been involved in military aviation activities, served as an Army Aviation Brigade Headquarters Company Commander, and also been a student pilot flying in various prop aircraft. While stationed and living in Orlando, my family and I watched 13 or 14 NASA rocket lift offs from Patrick AFB (1) and from our yard (remaining 12 or so). Nothing, nothing comes close to the speed and size of this craft.
