Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 - 4 secs
Triangular Shape with a Reflection of the Stars behind it (cloaked or something)

I was sitting on my porch a block from the beach star gazing while smoking nad suddenly an image appeared. No sound. About the size of a hang glider. It appeared as if it was trying to reflect the stars of the sky in the background.

I thought it was a really close pelican or something before I realized it was not and was further up, but not really high. It just kind of emerged down from the sky about the distance of a really low flying helicopter (maybe 100 - 150 feet in the air.) It went a short distance (about 5 - 10 feet of view in the sky) then vanished as it drew closer to the street lights. I stood up to see, but it vanished.

It appeared triangular in shape with some dim lights on each corner. It appeared to being trying to cloak itself with a reflection of the stars behind. Which was warped slightly. Could see the warped view of the behind view around the edges. Glided silently.
