Black disc near Capital Forest.

I was driving around Rock Candy Road looking to see if there were any good places for star watching. I wanted to find a good spot in my area for viewing the space station, away from lights.

I wake up early every day for work and just couldn't fall asleep after I woke up so decided to go for a ride since the sky is clear today. I did not know if there was a gate to get into Capital Forest, so I drove to check it out. Just past the parking lot for the trailhead there was a bright flash, everything illuminated like lightening, but there were no clouds and no storms anywhere close.

I stopped my car and got out to look at the sky and grabbed my iPhone. I saw a black round, maybe disc object maybe 100 feet from me, about 40 feet above the trees. It made no sound. My iPhone was completely black, then after a few seconds I saw the apple logo and realized it was rebooting. I never shut it down, it did this on its own.

The object was only visible by the fact that it block out the sky and made no sound at all. It moved to the WSW and behind some hills and I couldn't see it anymore.

I got very emotional afterwards and started crying. I am very skeptical of these sorts of things and have no idea what the object was.
