|strange oval shaped object that i saw off of my patio
As I stepped out onto my patio I looked up into the clear night sky and i saw a bright light moving across the sky. I grabbed my binoculars and focused onto the light. It appeared to be oval shaped with one large white light in the middle. The light in the middle of the object appeared to be the only light that I could see on the object. The object was also very low in the sky, as it passed over the top of me, I noticed that the light in the middle of the object made it appear to be shiny.
I continued watching the object, as it went away from me I noticed the moon in the east and the object at this time was actually bigger than the moon. I continued watching it as it continued going east. The object originated in the west sky, while watching the object continue east, it slightly turned and started heading southeast until it faded out of site. i would estimate the time frame to be around 25-30 seconds. The object made absolutely no noise what so ever.
At one point I dropped the binoculars down to see if i could actually see the object with my naked eye, it seemed possibly 100-150 feet above me. I would estimate the size of the object to be the size of a lear jet or helicopter. The size of the object was kind of hard to exactly determine because of the speed of which it was traveling.
