The craft was boomerang shaped and was witnessed by the four people in my party, on a sunny afternoon.

We (two adults & two children) were pulling up in our car at the local grocery store when we saw a large (dc-10 size), completely matte black, boomerang shaped object in the sky. It was about 1/4mile away and about 500ft in altitude. We observed it through open windows in our car. The weather was clear and sunny and we watched it fly over several local hills for a little less than a minute until it passed behind a larger hill and we could no longer see it. It was coming from the south and headed toward the north and was moving slowly (about 90mph-although it was hard to gauge accurate speed), and it was completely silent. We heard no noise whatsoever, which is what surprised us the most. Being as that it was so low we thought we should be able to hear it. Our backgrounds: I work in the computer industry and the other adult witness works in construction metals salesmanagement. We are both in our mid-30's. We are making no claim that this was any type of extraterrestrial craft, only that it was unidentifiable, flying and an object.
