Star shaped craft flys right over my head slowly at 60 feet, on Easter 1990.

I had been working on a oil painting all day and into the night and ran out of cigarettes around midnight, I went for a walk to the Exxon gas station located behind my apt, at the corner of Cherry street and Magnolia in East Knoxville. It was a clear night. As I was walking out of the gas station with my cigarettes and back across the parking lot I had this funny feeling to look up. When I looked up there was a star shaped craft flying right over the Exxon sign. The craft was about 60 feet up flying about 15 mph, I immediatly knew it was a UFO and ran to the sidewalk to get a better view, it flew right over my head, travelling east to west, the street lights on Magnolia lit up the bottom of the craft. It was star shaped, 4 pointed, approx 35 feet long, 30 feet wide, highly polished grey metallic, the points appeared conical, curving from point to point, it appeared thicker in the middle approx 5 feet thick, it had no lights flashing, no windows, no landing gear, no engines, no lettering or numbers on it and it made absolutly no sound as it flew down the street into downtown Knoxville. It had just turned Easter at the time of the sighting. I watched the craft go down the street untill it vanished into the darkened sky. I felt totally in awe seeing and watching the craft. I dont use drugs or drink and am a professional artist with 5 years of college training in the arts. I went back to my apt and told my roommate of the sighting and he laughted in my face, eventually I told my parents and they as well thought I was nuts. I was 27 at the time of the sighting. Thats it.
