|A dark silhouette of a triangle flew over my head silently.
I am an amateur astronomer. I was looking up at the sky while relaxing after an observation session on my back deck.
After about 15 minutes I was startled by a dark silhouette of an elongated triangle against the light polluted night sky fly over my head. It was completely silent, nothing more than a black outline of an elongated triangle with no lights. It blocked out the light of the stars overhead.
The whole incident occurred in a few seconds. It was no more than a hundred feet above the ground. It seemed about the size of my house. My guess on size is that the short base (tail) of the triangle was about 30 feet. The two long sides of the triangle about 50 feet.
I was only able to watch it for a few seconds. My rough estimate of speed was about 70 - 100 mph. I live near the airport so I see aircraft, lights, etc. everyday but nothing ever like this.
For What It Is Worth: I wish I had known of a UFO Reporting Center at the time of the sighting. I recently saw a reference to your site on a National Geographic UFO special. That is the reason I am sending the report to you now.
