Black Chevron object, camoflauged with the dark sky. no lights, no sound.

The sky was dark, no moon. I went out for a cigarette. I always look at the stars when I am outside. As I was looking, I saw a very dark objectmoving from East to west. If I did not have better than 20/20 vision, I would have missed it, as it almost blended in with the black sky. I estimate it to be moving at around 200mph and at an altitude of about 2000 feet. It made no sound, and being a star and airplane buff, it was not an airplane. It had no marker lights, strobes or any lights at all. It was very quiet, dark. The shape was like a boomerang as it passed overhead. As it continued away from me, I could just make out a shape from behind. The first thing I thought of when I saw the shape, was squashed pearls. If you picture a string of 4 black pearls on a table in a straight line, then you bend the string in the middle so that 2 pearls are on one side of the wing, and 2 pearls down the other side. Then you squish the pearls down until they are oval shaped.

Basically, it looked similar to the stealth bomber, but didn't have jagged wings. It looked like a black boomerang with 4 bumps on it.

Immediately after seeing this, I ran upstairs told my wife, and called the media and asked if there were any other reportings. They told me there weren't any reportings, but took my name and number down and said they will contact me if anyone else reports anything.

Why so long do I finally report this? I always wanted to tell someone who is interested, but didn't think to look on the net until tonight after going out again and seeing the same kind of night reminding me of that night. I can only say this. Don't always look for lights in the sky. I guess some of them want to remain unseen.
