I was walking my dog around the block like I do almost ten times a day, on a very overcast day. I heard what I thought was a regular passenger jet, and I looked up expecting to see a normal 737 looking plane. Instead, I saw what appeared to be much longer than a 737 and it had two very distinct pairs of parallel wings, in addition to the small blur of the tail wings I could make out. The plane wasn't going particularly fast, and it was low like it might be coming in for a landing several miles away. I tried to make sense of what I saw before taking my phone out, and bringing up the camera. I thought it could possibly be a plane carrying a glider, but it looked all one piece - both in person and in the picture/video. I also considered that it might be a drone, but like I said, I looked up because I heard what I thought were the engines of an airliner not the buzzing of a drone. I believe this object is definitely man-made, but I think it's either an experimental aircraft or some new kind of cloud seeder. I tried to look up pictures of anything similar, both in drones and planes, but couldn't find anything.I also think that it was flown on an overcast day on purpose, to try and conceal it better. I haven't seen anything like this on a clear or cloudy day before, or at all for that matter. The picture I got shows the wings better than video, but the video (while it looks like a cylinder) shows it's longer than a normal aircraft. I tried to zoomout a little to add height perspective, but it's still a pretty bad vid.Does anyone know what this was?
