Duration:20 seconds
Black oval craft flying below cloud line making no sounds, displaying no lights & travelling at high velocity.

April 4th, 2014, I was about to return to work after lunch break was over. I was walking in the door and glanced up in the sky to try and see if it looked like it was going to rain, a Black orb/oval shaped object caught my attention. The object was flying across the sky horizontally towards the downtown area, the rate in which it was moving looked faster than any fighter jets that i have seen flying.

The back object was moving rather fast, however there was no sound or flashing lights like airplanes, jets or helicopters have. As the object was moving towards the direction of the downtown area (10-15 miles from my workplace), it appeared to rotate mid-air resulting in looking more narrow and smaller than it did when i first noticed. After a couple seconds in this narrow appearance it rotated again and was back to the first observed shape.

From the moment I initially saw the object until it was out of view lasted about 15-20 seconds.

There were clouds covering the sky, and I am no expert of the distance of things, but it was well below the cloud line. My guess is this object had to be between 1,000 feet - 2,000 feet in the air.

I rushed inside work to tell my co-workers what I had seen only to get laughed at. Within a minute of entering the building, my co-workers & myself heard what sounded like 2 fighter jets flying overhead & the sound of the jets was going in the same direction as the object.

I do not know what the black orb/oval was that I saw. The object made No sounds, No lights and a fast velocity, which was shortly followed by some fighter jets. I can only describe the object as a U.F.O, I'm not automatically assuming Extra Terrestrial, I just can't explain what the object was.
