|Daytime sighting, boomerang-like shape, camo color
It never occurred to me to report what I witnessed this past spring, but after seeing a recent TV program I realize my experience may be insightful or useful to someone.
It was particularly unusual b/c it was a beautifully clear afternoon in the spring with blue skys and wispy clouds. I was doing yard work and scanning the sky for the local redtail hawks when my eye was drawn to a moving object far above traveling west to east. It flew silently in a straight line and into the horizon of the trees. Incredibly, it appeared to be camouflaged with the blue sky. What was remarkable was I never would have noticed it in the sky except that the moment my eye caught it, it was moving over a cloud. I saw a definite fixed shape and structure. Even once it passed the cloud its outline was well defined although the blue color of the craft matched the sky. It was shaped, overall, as a triangle, but its edges were rounded and the rear edge slightly curved towards the front "point". I suppose the "boomerang" description is most applicable, but its width was fatter or thicker than that word implies. It may or may not be pertinent to note there were no lights beaming, flashing, or shining. I watched it, awestruck, (it was daytime!), unlike anything I've seen or experienced, until it was gone in the distance. There was an object flying at a high speed and I sure as heck can't identify it to be anything of this world. Immediately afterwards, I ran inside and sketched what I saw. I don't know if anyone has ever had a similar experience, maybe this report can be of use to someone along the line.
I am a 24 year old student working towards a degree in communication disorders to become a speech and language pathologist. I consider myself conservative, analytic, and not easily fooled. I was so moved by what I saw that day, it was profound... it was what it was.
