...we looked up to see a small triangular shaped object traveling at very high speed.

On a golf outing with a friend, we looked up to see a small triangular shaped object traveling at very high speed. We did not hear any sound.

I had just finished recounting an earlier sighting of a strange craft and my friend chuckled and said, "so if I look up right now, I might see a UFO?". Then he said "man, that bird is really high!".

With that I looked up to see a triangular craft moving S.E. at a very high rate of speed. The object was between layers of Cirrus and Altostratus clouds, or between 8,000 and 15,000 feet. It moved in a straight line from directly overhead to beyond the horizon in approximately 30 seconds.

A commercial airliner passed by at about the same altitude (using the couds as reference) a few minutes later, which helped to verify our altitude estimates and moved like a slug relative to the speedy object.

I am certain that we are visited, but more certain that most sightings (like this one) are military craft. What a wonderful cover for our spy agencies!
