This was at about 0315. I was playing World of Warcraft so i was up late, also being on leave from Iraq. I went outside for a smoke looking off at the woods having heard the dogs, wolves or whatever they were suddenly stop barking. The tree frogs that normally make a chirping sound had stopped as well. Going on a stright azumath of about 340 (north). The color is kind of hard to explain but it was white and green but sort of shifted as it passed like a car with the paint that looks 2 colors when passing by. It passed abut 30 meters west of me. There was no sound and no heat. I asm not good with elevation height but it would have to have been a good distance up but way lower than a plane would fly. The most accurate desription i can give on the height would be about the same height an OH-58 would fly on a recon if you have ever seen that. Though no sound or heat you could clearly feel something as it passed. It was not electrical or magnetic. It was not my nerves as i am traied to not becomefrightened at the sight of things, foreign or domestic. the tree line from my house is about 300 meters back, and to the front about 100 meters. given at its height i can most likely see it from 500-600 meters, and no extra distance going away given the close tree line. To travel this distnce it was about 3 seconds or less. No trail per say was left, but the air after felt different though i am unable to describe how,as i have never felt it before.
I am a trained soldier who works on networking for the military. I am around planes alot as i support them in their mission keeping their networks up. I am air assault qualified. I am aware of the military planes we are currently using that could fly with no sound. This was not one of them as at night they fly lights out and when lights on, red and green lights, and not that low, ever. I am at my parents house on leave from iraq so i am trained and adept at making note of all details possible and keeping them in memory.
though when comming out they may jumble.
