Duration:10 seconds
Silent boomerang object seen in sky over Eagn MN

Object appeared from the southeast travelling northwest. Because of surrounding trees, about 120 degrees of shy was visible overhead. It was a cloudless night.

The object was boomerang shaped or possibly trianglular. A series of dull lights, remimded me of amber bicycle reflectors, between five to seven of them, were arranged in a chevron pattern along the leading edge. I am unsure if the object was boomerang shaped or triangular since the lights were an a chevron pattern and the training edge of the object was not clearly visible.

The motion of the object caught my attention since it was balck but a bit more matte and light than the backgound sky, like a silhoutte. I initially thought from the size that I was seeing the silhouette of an eagle flying glow overhead when I first caught sight of the object from the corner of my vision, but as soon as I turned my attention to the object, I saw the lights and details. It clearly occluded the stars in the sky.

I cannot estimate the object, but it was about the same size as a bald eagle flying about 50 feet overhead. The object made no sound. It traversed the arc of the sky visible to me in about 8 seconds (about 120 degrees). The speed and direction of the object appeared constant during the time I observed it. The lights did not flash or otherwise change shape, posiiton of color.

As I lost sight of it in the trees, I moved to a clear area which toook about 5 seconds. I was unable to locate the object in the sky again.
