Triangle "glided" over bilboard by my house for 8 scnds then vanished, pursued by 8 emergency vehicles

I was smoking a cigarette in my back yard at night. Suddenly everything went kind of silent and I had what I can only describe as a primal fear response. Something just told me to get inside.

As i walked up my five steps to the backdoor, I noticed lights in my right peripheral vision. I thought it might have been a cargo plane, but as I turned to focus on the lights I immediately realized it was not any kind of conventional aircraft.

It was illuminated by a bill board allowing me to see the entire craft. It was illuminated by a billboard on the side of hwy 98 so i assume it was over santa rosa sound (i live right by santa rosa sound on the other side of hwy 98).

It was huge, dwarfing the billboard sign. It had a white light on each corner of the craft and an orangish reddish orb on the bottom center. I saw a row of smaller white lights going down the side. The body of the thing was matte black colored or very dull charcoal grey.It was exltremely slow moving, maybe 2mph from my point of view. It looked like it just floated kind of.Its direction was west to east.

All of this lasted for about only 8 seconds, i was still standing on the top step of my stairs. At this point i was in complete shock and felt as though all the blood had just left my body. My memory gets kind of blurry here because of the adrenaline going on, but i openend the door and yelled for my mom (im 22). By the time i looked back and my mom got outside it was absolutely gone. And i mean this thing was HUGE and just gliding completely silently pretty close to my house only seconds ago and then it was gone?! We stayed out there looking for about one minute and then eight trucks of some kind came flying down the highway,all with their red emergency lights flashing on top. They were traveling together like a convoy in the same direction and location where i last saw this triangle craft.

It is important to note that i live right by the southern boundary of Eglin Airforce Base. Also, the night before this me and my mother witnessed a strange light at a much greater distance. The bottom line is this thing was huge, silent, moved impossibly slow, and was something that is absolutely unknown to me.

I am a college educated young man and i do not do any drugs.I'm an avid fisherman and living right by Eglin i've seen everykind of aircraft they've got, but this was simply life- changing. I would like to know if anybody else reported this on June 1st because it was so close and enormous and slow i know other people had to see it. If it weren't for my mother witnessing the convoy vehicles with flashing lights pursuing this, i would probably question my sanity. It was simply surreal and amazing and i will NEVER forget this until the day that i die.

PS I made a sketch that could be provided.
