Half-moon shaped UFO spotted while flying at the fire tower in Bowden WV

At the Bickles Knob fire tower, near Bowden, West Virginia. Myself and two others saw a half-moon shaped ship fly directly into our line of vision for 2-3 seconds, the ufo sped up, and then completely disappeared. The object was silver and appeared to be lit at the bottom. It seemed to be around 100-200 yards in the air.

We were focused on a specific spot in the sky for a few minutes, looking at a grouping of stars. The ufo appeared directly in front of where we were viewing. There was a large amount of lightning (cloud to cloud) around the area, but not specifically in the area we were, before, and after, we saw the ufo.
