Silent V-shaped aircraft slowly glided over Williamsburg, VA, then disappeared instantly.

My friend and I glanced up in the night sky at what we thought was a flock of geese in V formation. But it was lights on an aircraft gliding slowly and silently to the southeast. One side of the V was shorter than the other. I think there were about 7 pale yellow lights on one side, about 5 on the other. The lights appeared oblong, not circular. Our line of sight was obscured as it moved behind a lone tree, but then it didn't come out from behind the tree. It disappeared. No sound. I've only seen photos of Stealth Bombers from above--do they have lights like this? Are Stealth Bombers silent? We are located close to Camp Peary and other military bases.

((NUFORC NOTE: We received the following communication on January 20, 2003, from a party, who elected to remain totally anonymous, regarding the image that accompanies this report. We cannot confirm the assertion made below:

"The Report "November 1st, A Silent V-shaped aircraft slowly glided over Williamsburg, VA, then disappeared instantly. " is a hoax! Make an Level- and Contrastcorrection and Lighten up the picture, and you can see the shapes from the trees, but no shapes from the space-craft. The lights are simply made by computer."
