|Round object with 5 lights
Around 9 PM, my boyfriend called me to our balcony to witness an unidentified object flying overhead.
I got there just in time to see it vanish, heading roughly East to Southwest.
The object was a round/disc shape, with 5 dim whitish lights on its outer edge.
It seemed to either be a translucent dark color, or to reflect the surrounding clouds, which led to it looking 'ghostly'. It seemed pretty large.
I'm bad at estimating altitudes, but we're on the direct flight path to the Dallas/Love Field airport which is only about 4 miles away so airplanes fly pretty low overhead (maybe 300ft). This object appeared to only be 2 or 3 times as high; it was roughly the size of a quarter held at arm's length when it disappeared (possibly into the clouds).
It was also traveling pretty fast. We heard no sound.
