Location: Gainesville, FL
Shape: Rectangle
Duration:5 minutes
Very large aircraft, moving at 30 knots, at about 2500 feet, rectangular in shape.

It was a very clear night, no clouds in the sky, full moon and the temperature was in the mid 50's F. We were standing on the back porch looking at the stars. A few small planes were flying in the distance, we could see and hear them clearly. Also, routine commercial flights were flying to the north of us.

Then, over the trees, coming from the north, flying in a southernly direction was an object. I put it between 2000 and 3000 feet in altitude. It looked like a Motorola Slvr phone. It was black, blacker then the night. It also had two orbs of light, one on it front underside, and back underside. the front light was white, the back blue. The lights were odd, more orbs than the bright points normally seen on aircraft. The also did not blink. They did not turn off or blink. It moved very slow, maybe 30 knots. It took a long time for it to travel over us and down its flight path. It also wasn't oriented in a direction a normal plane would be in. It flew with it's smaller sides oriented to the front and back (meaning, it had no wings). There was also no sound from it, even though it was directly above us. It was big. It's length was like a C-5 Galaxy or B-1B. It's width little less than half its length.

Large Aircraft Very Low No Sound At the speed and alt. it was flying at, only a helicopter could mimic it. If a helicopter was flying that low, we would have heard it, and felt it. It also would have been the world's biggest helicopter, too. If it was a regular aircraft, it would have had to have been flying at a great altitude for it to appear to move slowly to us. And if it was flying at 50,000 feet, its actually size would have been like a mile long.

I know a lot about planes. I know what all (known) modern American Air Force planes look like and can easily identify them. This was bizarre.

I didn't see it in a box down there, but I wouldn't mind an email back with information regarding other sigthings similar to this.
