Black object moving slowly from North to South.

I was laying in my dads backyard looking up at the stars. Perfectly clear sky no moon. Just to the north I saw a very thin white curved line appear, moving in a southern direction. The line was so thin I could hardly see it. It looked kind of like a curved bolt of lightning. Following the line was a object blacker than the night sky. The line started to fade away until it was completly gone. I could still see the black object moving slowly, against the stars that would disappear then reappear. Just before it past over the trees the lights from the city reflected off of it. It had a brown tint, and the front edge was almost white. I saw no flashing lights or other elumination from the object, only the reflection of the city lights. The shape was triangular but closer to what the stealth bomber looks like. I thought it might have been the stealth bomber but the speed seemed to be to slow for its altitude and size. There was no sound. It was about 200 feet from the ground so, if it was a jetplane, I definatly would have heard some noise.
