It's been a while so i might not remember some of the details too accurately. it was pretty close, less than a thousand meters for sure maybe not even half of that. i was in a building on the second or third floor and the craft was on the ground, so i had a pretty good view on it, without any trees or anything else in the way to block my view. the craft was completely glowing orange, when i first saw it was in a cylinder shape and it had a lid on it that would keep opening closing again and again, it looked pretty much just like a petal trash can (without the petal of course) with the difference that the lid would not fit perfectly on the lower cylinder part like with a trash can, it was too big. after the lid kept opening and closing for a while the craft completely changed shape within a few or maybe even less than a second, it was now in a boomerang shape (or something similar can't exactly remember, but i am sure it was some triangular like shape)hovering slightly above the ground(i could see the reflection of the light on the ground) and started slowly flying down the forest until i could no longer see it.
