I saw a wing shaped object coasting right overthe trees in my backyard, appears to be a right wing.
My wife and I were sitting on the bed when we heard what we assumed to be a airplane flying over the house, Although It didn’t exactly sound like a airplane. It was so close I hesitated to get up and see what it was, once the sound was over my room and in my backyard I quickly hopped up to see, I popped my back door open to see a wing shaped object coasting over the trees on my yard. It wasn’t speeding, it was seemingly landing because it was at the top of the trees and moving so calmly. The trees were not moving at all. The wing shaped object looked like a right wing of a airplane but not exactly. It had 4 red lights about a foot apart from each other and one blinking light on the end of it. I couldn’t see the left side of it because My yard is full of trees. Had it been a airplane I would’ve seen the left wing sticking out and I would’ve seen a vessel. It seemed to connect to something at the point but it wasn’t visible because the trees were blocking. It’s very dark in my yard at night as well as my neighbors. I didn’t see a engine on the wing like an airplane. Had it been an airplane i could’ve seen the people on the plane that’s how close it was. I could’ve threw an egg and hit from the balcony had I stepped outside. I didn’t see the rear wing following behind. I ducked when I saw it coasting over. It was moving so gently and smooth. The sound didn’t match the movement and speed of it. My reaction was “what the **** is that?!” Which alarmed my wife to get up and rush to the door by that time it was already behind the trees and still moving, my wife and I saw the red light through the trees. That’s all my wife saw. My brain didn’t recognize what it was that’s why I reacted the way I did. My wife said I had the look of fear on my face. The “wing” shaped object was an estimated 20 feet long and 2-3 feet in width and it was white. I visually saw it for 2-3 seconds. The whole ordeal from the initial sound was about 10 seconds. I laid in bed for about 5 seconds when we first heard it, I jumped up after, it took about a second or two to open my door and I watched it go behind the trees in 3 seconds. Had I jumped up as soon as we heard it I could have possibly gotten footage or a picture. It actually sounds like it I came straight down or from the side and not flying from the front of the house. Once it went into the trees after I saw it the sound was gone, like it never happened. 20 minutes later the military comes flying over the house. It was a reported chinook which carries 55 military troops and/or equipment and 3 black Hawk helicopters. Shaking the entire house windows and all. This was also reported by neighbors via my ring bell. We thought it was an airplane doing an emergency landing initially. I called the local news And gave report they stated they got calls about the military flying in but none of what I saw. 2 days before I saw what I saw, it was reported that an hour away from me people saw a triangle shape flying over the highway.
