While sitting on my patio with my head leaned back looking at the stars on a clear night, I saw something, shaped like a boomerang, very large, I guess about 1000x the size of an airplane, moving at relatively low altitude, guess 8,000 feet, very fast, I would guess an arc of 12 degrees, starting from over my head to straigth ahead. The 'object'(for lack of a better word) appeared to be a sort of glowing gradient where the leading edge of the 'wing' was a fairly deep orange, and the trailing edge seemed to be glowing orange-yellow, and may have been leaving an orange-yellow trail all along the trainling edge of the 'wing' as it moved. The incident was entirely silent. There were planes in the air, but far off in a different quadrant of the sky; they had nothing to do with this object. The object appeared for about a second, long enough for me to alert my wife, but by the time she tried to see it, it was gone.
