It was about 6:40am, my wife was making breakfast in the the kitchen, looked out the window.. She spotted an object about half mile away at an altitude of around 1000 feet..she came to the bedroom to get me, but in those few seconds it was gone. Around 3 minutes later i stepped out on the balcony to have a cigarette and just as i lit it i saw it. It resembled a radio controlled helicopter but a helicopter that flipped and tumbled on every axis.shifted direction instantly moving left to right, each horizontal motion covered around 200-400 feet a second before changing direction. It did this for around 4 minutes, i can best describe it as hinged in the center like a pair of scissors and moved like how a butterfly knife looks when twirling it around. It disappeared into a cloud and as it it stopped spinning and slowly ascended into clouds. Ive seen unexplained lights and strange objects only a few times in my life. This has to be the strangest because we saw it so clear.
