Directly over head at tree level a Massive, Silent, Hovering Object blocking the night sky

An August late night, on my way home from work, I came upon a group of cars and people off the side of the road, I pulled over shut off my car and approached the group where I was directed to look over to the northeast at tree level, where I saw a huge dark form (no lights) hovering (no noise), I realized around me were people I did not know other than one, the father (barber) of a highschool classmate who I had just graduated with who lived within a mile of this site. People were saying it is just stationary and not moving, suddenly it began to move very slowly across the ground at tree level toward us and stopped directly over where we were standing. I was captivated and not afraid. Others were saying "it's the Russians". I did not speak I just focuced on the huge object that appeared to be aboiut the size of a football field, blocking out the entire night sky, it's bright blue white light coming from windows in a horeshoe format surrounding a gear of somekind underneath the object was of interest to me. I was waiting for some thing to happen, but as far as I know at that time nothing did, after about 20 minutes or so it seemed, it just began to move slowly at tree top level south west over the country side with no noise and no fanfare, as far as I could see, until it slowly went out of sight. I was told by one of the bystanders it was headed to a air base about 50 miles away. I drove home and ran into my house where my father was sitting reading...I told him about what I had experienced and he just got up and went to his bookshelf and handed me a paperback book about an accounting of a commercial pilots story of spotting more than one unidentified object in his flying career. Of course, to this day I read and stay up on serious accounts of this interesting aspect to our universe. I was seventeen when I had the experience and it shaped my life and has been forever a reference point that nothing can surprise me and has formed a open mind and unlimited potential attitude. The object! was a s oft delta shape and was a matt deep green blue or black, no distingusing features or symbols on the object. I was a massive object, overwhelming, indeed.
