My UFO Sighting: CE II

At 21:00 or 9:00 PM a coworker and I left work for the day and went to start up our vehicles in the associate parking lot of a local /chain retail store. It was approximately -34 to -44 degrees below zero with a strong wind and dark. It was colder inside our automobiles than outside so we waited outside our vehicles while they were warming up. I looked up at approximately south, southeast (which was above the discount store building) to observe an object, in the shape of a trapezoid, that was large enough that it's bottom was 7 degrees above the horizon and it's top was 24 degrees above the horizon. The object had a cluster of lights that were semi structured / semi randomly placed that apeared mother of pearl in color. It was stationary regardless of the wind. I waited to see if the other person observed it as well then he asked me if I was seing what he was seeing. After observing it for about 15 minutes it moved 5 degrees to the right then went stationary again. At this time our vehicles were warm so we both drove home. It just so happens that I lived 1.4 miles in the direction of the object. So I observed it getting larger as I drove toward it. From the balcony of my appartment I observed it for another 15 minutes. Then I went to sleep due to exhaustion. I since then have taken GPS readings from both sighting locations. With the help of University Scientists I have obtained Infrasound and Weather Radar Data. The infrasound data may not be related based on university staff reccomendations. Also, the infrasound readings are below audible levels. I did not hear any noise. However two bars of infrasound do appear. One bar at about 21:00 the other bar maybe 45 minutes later. (The one scientist that explained this to me became upset when I expressed my intention to report this data.) It is estimated that the object was 45 miles away and 4,000 feet above the earth. (?) With the help of three mathematicians I estimate the width of the object to be about 23.3 miles wide. ! It is t hought to be of a natural origin. However, it did seem to exhibit some movement that suggests intelligent operation. But I cringe at that speculation. The creative part of me wants to elaborate and fill in the blanks. But the logical side of me is struggling to explain it away as a natural phenomenon.

I have put together a 77 page book on it and sold one copy over ebay. There is a quickly rendered photoshop picture, that I developed, with it. Geography, B.A.
