black cube that flashed coded lights

Unidentified over Manassas June 17, 2005 1:40 pm EDT A neighbor first spotted it, thinking it was a bird. She pointed it out to me. It appeared to be an all black cube, moving from north to south, just below a layer of cumulus clouds. It was to the southeast of our site. The side toward us was pulsing/flashing a codeóblink, blink, blink, pause, blink, long pause, then repeated again and again. It stopped its forward N-S motion, and slowly ascended into a cloud. At the time there were several planes in the area, and also high flying birds. It was not one of those. It was difficult to judge the size of the cube, but I would say it was about the size of an airline fuselage.
