It was either so low it made no sound or so large that detail was very good from an altitude, changed course, no nav lights, when its lights faded, it almost seemed to pause and wait before continuing, at that point you needed to look next to it to see tt

Object Flight Path
Path with directional change
A cross shaped object was observed by myself and two other people as we sat outside smoking cigarettes. One of the other witnesses was the first to spot it, and instantly stated "what the f is that?" Myself and the third witness then looked up and saw it. It was traveling Eastward, moving at a tremendous pace. The object did not have navigation lights like an aircraft, and if it was an aircraft, it was flying over a well populated city with constant air traffic with no illumination of any sort, and that is a disaster waiting to happen. The object was not using lights of any kind, it truly seemed that the lights from the city were reflecting off of it, causing it to be greatly reflective until it moved beyond their reach. At the moment that the light no longer reflected off of the object, it was still visible but only by looking next to the object, as you would a distant and dim star. When the object became difficult to observe, it seemed to slow way down and just hang in the air like it was hovering for a few seconds and then resumed moving. No sound was emitted. When first spotted, the object was flying due East, then we all watched it change direction to a North Easterly heading. Myself and the person who spotted the object first both served in the Army, myself being a paratrooper. There are NO aircraft that looks even remotely similar to this object.
