Shape: Chevron
Duration:1 min
chevron shaped with 6 dim lights on either side shaped like birds with no heads or tails.

I was out in my backyard which is like a long doggy run about 6 feet wide. I was looking west at Orion at 8:55 on Wednesday , Feb. 22nd 2006. It was a clear night with moonlight. I turned east to see if my cat was around, when suddenly I noticed that the moon light seemed to be dimming. I looked up to see something strange coming towards me. It covered my yard and looked like a flock of large birds soaring in formation except the point was missing. Starting from the back bottom edges and going towards where the point should have been , it seemed like dim lights (light gray) or reflectors shaped like east - west marque gems on either side of a small circle . There were about 6 or more on either side. As it flew past I noticed that the marques on the right side were starting to stack up on each other, that is when I realized it was banking right and turning toward the north. I use to live by LAX and this object made no jet sound or propeller sound. If I had made a fist it would not have covered it up. My brother in law says birds do not fly at night. If it was birds, there wings never flapped. It headed north. Is this a UFO ???
