A distortion in the sky that moved and stopped, then moved again.

My parents and I were just sitting on our porch about twenty one minutes ago when I saw what I would describe as a distortion of the sky. It kinda looked like maybe a triangle, but I couldn't really tell. It was huge, I would guess maybe a hundred feet or more, depending on how high up it was. It moved really slowly over the tree tops and slowed down as it came over the Ohio River. It looked like it was just looking at the water then it came towards our house. It speeded up and dissapeared over the hill to the back of our house. I'm not really sure of the exact details, but it seemed to have a sphere on the bottom, but like I said it was just a distortion. The reason I think it had a sphere on the bottom(semi-sphere) is the way the stars moved. They got longer and longer, and then seemed to get really close at the middle of the distortion. This is my second Ufo sighting, but I really don't know what it was. It could have been some strange gas that can stop and move again or a military aircraft that can go invisible. The reason I don't know if it is or not is because I never heard of anything like this before, but if it was a Ufo, it's a strange one. And something else that was weird, all of our watches stopped at the same time, and was a minute behind all of the ones in the house.
