Large rectangular, metallic, no sound, no lights, just above trees, not moving trees, Austin, TX end of 1996 thru 1997

From Oct of 1996 thru 1997 I lived in an apartment on Fathom Circle in Austin, Texas. It was late at night. I went outside to walk my boyfriend to his car. He was much taller than I so when I hugged him goodnight I looked up towards the sky. There were a few deem lights on the property where we were standing. As I looked up there was just enough light to show a very large rectangular metallic looking flying craft just above the trees. There was just enough light to show the outline. There was no sound and no movement of the trees despite how close it was to the trees. The craft was very large and I saw no lights. It did however block out the stars. I never told anyone because I didn’t think anyone would believe me. I was so shocked I didn’t even say anything to my boyfriend. It was moving slowly, but would have passed behind the trees before he would have seen it. I just said goodnight and went to bed. I have tried to forget about it all of thes! e years, but after seeing all of the reports of sightings lately on T.V. and the history of UFOs, I felt I should at least let someone know. Maybe someone else saw what I did. I never made note of the month or time, I just know I was living there from Oct 1996 thru 1997. I actually felt privileged to see such a sight.

((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting in 1997 is approximate. PD))
