Coming out of the house, facing SouthWest I observed an aircraft with a wingspan similiar to a 767, two white lights underneath.
It had no fuselage or tail. There were also no other lights, no strobes, nothing flashing as I'd normally expect to see. I could see the setting sun reflecting underneath the metallic wing as it flew away from me in a generally SSW direction. It appeared to be 4-7 miles away from me. I wondered if it weren't an aircraft.
A moment or two later, my question was answered when it went from flying level to a zero degree climb (straight up!). It rose approximately 100-200 ft and dissappeared completely from view.
The sky was cloudless in that part of the sky.
I know of no aircraft that could make that maneuver without stalling and crashing, much less dissappearing like it did.
