Location: Hilmar, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:4-5 seconds
Large, whitish triangle rapidly crossing sky

On 14 Jun, 12:10 a.m. I was in my back yard turning off the lawn water and looked up at the stars because it was a dark, clear night. I saw a white/grey sort of metalic color (but did not shine)large triangle object quickly floating across the sky from south to north. It had no lights, but was clearly visible. I don't believe it was more than half a mile from the ground. It made no sound and I don't think I was more than a quarter of mile from it. I observed it for about 4-5 seconds until it was obscured by my neighbor's house. I worked at and lived near Castle AFB,CA, (home of the B52's and KC135s) before it closed in 1995 so am familiar with large aircraft. I don't know why and can't explain it but I got the feeling this object was observing this area. We are just an agricultural area with mostly daries and orchards and do not have a large population.
