|Metallic saucer floating and slightly shaking
I was outside playing in my backyard and the sun was setting but it wasn't completely dark. When I opened my gate to go to my front yard. About 100-150 feet was a saucer shaped object. It was a metallic color and the hull of the craft looked a light different color. The craft also had a cap on top of it. It was standing still and was shaking a little bit. There was no sound and for about 2 minutes it stood there still. I was in shock and I didn't even pull out my phone to record it because I couldn't believe my eyes. There was a circle at the bottom of the craft that looked like it would lite up. Then it tilted to the side and that's when I saw a part of the top of the craft. Then it went upwards and diagonal west insanely fast. That's when I knew that it wasn't an airplane because it seemed like it broke through the sky because it disappeared so fast.
The aircraft looked about to be a little under 20 feet long and about 10-15 feet tall. Metallic color and had three square things at the bottom of the craft. Everything was metallic silver/metal color. The top of the craft had this metal cap too. In between the three bottom square objects was a medium size circle, about 5 feet in diameter. It looked like it would light up but it wasn't. It looked like a white light that went out with a metallic hue over it.
