Shape: Oval
Duration: 30 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, There was an aura or haze around the object
Oval lighted object made no noise as it rapidly flew overhead in sky.

On Friday, August 12 2005 around 4:25 AM I stepped outside for a smoke, and I looked overhead to see if I could catch any of the meteor shower. It was too cloudy, but I spotted a single oval object moving rapidly across the sky. It was heading toward the north side of town, and it had lights on the underside. It seemed almost to be shiny or have a haze or glow to the sides, but I can't be sure. It could have been a trick of the lights on the object. It did not look like any aircraft I had seen before, and I heard no noise at all. The object seemed to maintain its speed while overhead, though as I was losing sight of it the object seemed to slow some. This however could have been due to my perspective and line of sight.
