Right over our heads.

We had just stepped out to enjoy the summer afternoon when we noticed we were in a shadow. Looking up, we saw a very large disc shaped object about 30 feet above our heads. It was about 80 yards in diameter. Really large but made absolutely no sound. It was just floating over our heads. It then started heading south slowly and went about a mile when it just made a really fast 45 degree angle going to the east and up. It only took a second to do that and disappeared. Again no sound. It stayed in the same horizontal position when it did this. No sonic boom.
