Full Description of event/sighting: I can't believe I'm doing this, or even if I believe it but here goes.
Late last night I was watching TV (South Park and the Simpson's) and decided that half way through the second show it was time for bed which meant one more cigarette, I grabbed my CD player and my pack of Benson & Hedges and went out on the patio. While I was sitting out there something caught my eye from the apartment building across the parking lot.
It looked like someone had thrown a Becel margarine container over the next building with what looked like tin foil around it (the object was way bigger than a margarine container, but same shape), it was shining and when I looked at it about 2 seconds later it slowed down and looked like it was gliding. I had headphones on at full blast so I don't know if anyone was out there at the same time or not. The object got out of view after almost a minute and I didn't think anything of it. I just finished my cigarette and went inside and that is when the strangest thing happened, when my CD players batteries die it let's out this really loud beep telling me the batteries are low. But the player just shut itself off, I would hit play again and see if it had just missed the beep, but it wouldn't turn back on at all.
Then about 10 minutes ago I went back outside with the same CD player, same CD to have a cigarette forgetting about what had happened until the CD started to play perfectly normal and then I remembered the night before. And the batteries were almost full and everything worked fine.
I honestly don't know what to think or if it was anything at all, if someone had thrown a really large container there is no way they could have thrown it over the building across the parking lot (about 3 car lengths from sidewalk to sidewalk, not to mention the sidewalks themselves and the slope of the roofs).
The CD player is fine so I don't know what it could have been. Please let me know.
Well as far as I can think of is it was heading from south east to north west. It definitely looked as though it was maneuvering on it's own, it wasn't spinning just kind of soaring, there was no wind, I know this because I was on the top floor balcony and had no trouble lighting a cigarette without blocking the flame from any wind. It was calm out. I didn't stay long after I saw it, I finished my cigarette and went back inside, it was after midnight so the sun wasn't out, it had set a few hours before. It looked like it was lit. A dim light, nothing that I know of would have been illuminating the sides of it, but it had the look of being lit from the inside with a dim light, nothing that I thought overly odd at the time. before I put on my head phones and even after they were off I didn't hear anyone speaking or laughing or even a car driving by.
My place is right by the highway. I had an odd feeling when I went inside before I turned off the lights was that I was being watched, I didn't pay attention to the cats in the house because one sleeps in the guest bedroom and the one in the master bedroom was under the bed I'm supposing because she is usually at the window.
Unfortunately I thought it would be an uneventful smoke break and took out my CD player with me instead of my book, that way I didn't have to have the porch light on and possibly disturb a neighbor.
Thank you to the witness for their report.
