I observed UFO through 15x70 binoculars, so close that I could see black dust on the walls of the "vehicle."

I was coming out on the balcony for a cigarette (I do not smoke illicit drugs nor I don't drink alcohol; was wearing eye glasses at the time of the event).

When I was siting on the chair and looking outside (photo attached) I saw strange looking triangle/grey object. It didn't have any lights whatsoever and it was slowly moving from right to the left (as on the photo) and (north to south on map). I knew right away that it is something strange and can not be airplane. We don't have airplane flying this way, I have never seen one. And all airplanes, helicopters have flashing light this was as dead piece of ring like round concrete color object in the air.

I wear glasses and I had them on during sighting, after seeing that it is something strange I quickly opened the balcony door and grabbed my Celestron 15x70 Binoculas (which I have always ready staying beside the balcony door (I watch birds, eagles, airplanes, etc). 

When I got binoculars and looked back it was right on the top of the building and moving slowly south. It is hard to identify it quickly in binoculars. That's why I looked at the building first, then up, and I got image sharp exactly at the object.   

My knees shaking a little, and I screamed to my wife to come and see. I probably looked at it 6 seconds, and I just could not believe what I see. I will describe it here:

As you can imagine first it looked just like something large grey ((?)) in the sky, but after binoculars magnification it was clear as day. I saw a grey colored like concrete round object. it was reminding me as a vehicle tire as if you would put it flat on the ground but without center (wedding ring like). It was grey without any lights or windows. It looked in some places like it was dirty dark/black dust. It looked like an old spaceship after entering atmosphere burned in some places. It definitely looked not as shiny as other people describe.

It was grey ,made object with black dust parts all over it. It felt like this ship went through places for sure. What was most interesting that it didn't just fly straight left, it was gliding like a rock if you throw it on the top of the lake. It was gliding on the air and it looked so light not like airplane fly heavy in the sky this object was gliding and I felt that it was crashing.

I turned around to call my wife and screamed for her to come over, when I turned back it was gone.

In measurements I would say it looked in length of Boeing 777 and round like a ring with a hole in the center.

Why I was lucky that it was couple days after full moon and it was still bright and big. The moon was exactly behind me that moment, so all moon light was going towards this UFO. I believe only because of this I saw it. It is easy to see birds flying at night when the get light from the city or the moon on them.   

I draw how it looked right away and I took a photo of the view (edited in Photoshop of exact dimensions how it appeared to me on that night).

I hope it helps and maybe someone would recognize seeing the same.
