Witnessed a black rectangle go over our house...

It was a Saturday afternoon and my husband and I were laying on the livingroom floor watching the evening news. The TV was backed by a large window facing east. We both noticed a dark object silhouetted against the clouds. As it appoached we could see the shape as a rectangle. We both jumped up to get a better look. I told him to keep watching the object and I ran through the house to the backdoor, which was its projected path. When I got outside I looked where it should have been and then where it had been and it was not visible to me. It was strangely quiet. I was looking overhead and to the west over a three story apartment building directly behind the house when I heard the roar of an engine (I have hesitated all these years to admit this)and before my eyes, appearing to "just miss" the top of the apartment building was a commercial airliner as though it appeared out of some other dimension. To say I was dumbstruck would be an understatement. My husnad reported that he watched the rectangle till he lost sight of it over the house. In reinacting the scene and checking the timing, I should have seen it as well, which I didnt. He on the other hand did not hear the roar of the jet, that I did. I have no idea what I witnessed that day, but I had a feeling I would see it again. Of course I didnt believe that feeling which was a big mistake.
