|First sighting @23:03 while watching meteor shower. Saw VERY large boomerang shape object crossing sky at satellite speed. Again at 0:34 with skeptical friend noticing it. It was in the exact line of path as before. Altitude approx. 40k-75k ft.
I witnessed this object alone appox. 23:03 while looking for meteorites. Noticed a group of lights, very faint, in the shape of a huge boomerang, possibly a delta shape. It was a perfectly clear night, in a location where light pollution is relativly low. I told my wife and best friend about this sighting, they noticed that I was spooked, but didn't have interest. They accompanied me soon after, only because they wanted to see the meteor shower. My friend @ 0:34 saw the exact same object in the exact same line of path where I witnessed it for a second time. The line of path was North to South. It took approx. 5 sec to cross 70 degrees of sky, and I guess it was approx. 40K to 75K ft. in alt. (guessing 2-3 times an airliners). My background is a B.S. in Aerospace Eng and my profession in Information Systems. The second witness is a Architect and specializes in Museum exhibits.
