Sitting on front porch, 3rd story. My girlfriend sighted it and shouted: "GET UP AND LOOK AT THIS! RIGHT NOW!" I jumped up and we both witnessed the object for about 5-10 more seconds. Girlfriend saw it for 4-5 more seconds than me.
the object had no lights, made no sound, but caught your eye because it was much DARKER than the night sky, a dark grey/black, huge, and BIZARRE looking! Giant curving appendages protruding from a cylindrical/rectangular center space. Each appendage had a distinct orb/sphere/fist on it's end. The orb's diameter was about twice the width of the appendage.
It was large, low, and CLOSE. less than a few blocks away it seemed flying directly down College/287-south. I'd say no more than 500-feet high? Hard for me to judge.
When I first noticed it I had NO IDEA what the object was. As the details of it's shape took focus I immediately felt chills down my spine and goosebumps all over because it just looked UNNATURAL. My brain was in shock. I still have no idea what it was but we have taken to referring to it as the "giant flying octopus"
It did not stray in altitude up or down. It did not change it's path or speed in the slightest. That was part of how strange it was. It just hovered moving very quickly in a southern direction. The appendages DEFINITELY MOVED.
We were both moved to a very intense state of awareness, something very primal feeling. We were scared. We had just seen something that we had NO WORDS FOR. NO OBJECTS THAT CAME CLOSE TO BEING A COMPARISON IN OUR HEADS WERE AVAILABLE. You feel vulnerable, curious, intensely awake/aware. It's a strange feeling to see something that your brain says, "That isn't supposed to exist" in response to.
Immediately after seeing it and initially OOHH'ing and AHH'ing we went inside, tore two pieces of paper out of her notebook and drew what we saw on opposite sides of the room to compare what we think we saw.
We lost sight of the object as it went past the wall of our porch/apartment.
