Black Traingler UFO floating in mountain sky, later very odd flickering like morris code close by.

While on a hunting trip, I was hiking along a ridge, I stoped for a break, while I sat on rock, at aprox 6000 feet elevation, I looked strait acrossed a very big canyon, there was somthing very shiny setting on a cliffs edge, as I was looking at this, somthing appeard in the sky aprox. 1000 yards or so to the left of this shiny object, it at first looked like a black crow gliding in the sky going away from me, as I looked longer at this,only a minute or so, it seemed to be to large and to far away from me to be a bird, so out of curiosity I brought up my binoculars to take a closer look, at this point, I got a clear but only quick look, maybe 30 seconds, it appeared to be a triangler shape, a matt black in color, my first thought is that this is not a bird, as it tilted slightly to the left showing its belly side, there appeared to be a glass cock pit on the under side, toward the front, the glass to the cock pit looked very differnt almost undescribeable, there was no noise to be heard, no motors to be seen, but with a quick turn to the right it disapeared over the top of the far mountain, sitting there stunned and confused with what I just seen, and now looking across the entire distant mountain tops hopeing to maybe see it again, about 20 minutes had gone by, the shiny object was still on the cliffs edge, I noticed aprox. 1000 yards or so to the right of it on what appeard to be a flat area carved out of the cliffs edge some flickering almost like morris code, I had been looking at the shinny oject at this time in total about 40 minutes, and had not noticed any flickering before, it seemed to appear out of no where, the flickering looked like a very small mirror efect with the sun shinning on and off it, curious again, I brought up my binoculers for a closer look, the flickering was first only at one point, then aprox. 25 to 35 feet to the right more flickering, just shortly after that aprox. I am guessing 10 to 15 feet behind or above or both, there was more flickering which appeard! to be a bove the ground and not against the cliffs edge, kinda like the flickering was an outline of some sort, in fact I could not figure out how this could be possible, no spot flickered at the same time, and none the same, it very much reminded me of morris code of some sort with mirrors, but the suspended flickering was just unexplainable, no lights or noise of any kind, no pictures taken, anyway aprox. 1 hour has passed no other siting made, the flickering remained, and I got up and left.
