very large V shaped craft flys from horizon to horizon in 3 seconds, very low and silent (Los Angeles)

My wife and I were stopped in our vehicle at a traffic light when a very large V shaped object flew by silently, and very very fast. So fast that neither one of us said a thing, it had to be an illusion.

I fly airplanes and this was no airplane. It was flying at an altitude of about 300 feet, and appeared at least twice as big as a 747. The disturbing and creepy thing was that it was completely silent and traveled from horizon to horizon in about 3 seconds.

The light turned green and we just sat there dumbfounded. After a minute of silence, my wife said "honey.....did you see what I just saw?"

We went home and decided to each draw our version of what we saw without discussing it. Of course our drawings were virtually the same: a large, V shaped craft, with 2 or 3 lights running down each vane of the "V" and a light at the apex or nose of the "V." It was black in color and the lights were a dull yellow or white. Very freaky, almost disturbing to see something that big, so low, so fast. The fact that is was so low (let alone silent) tells me that this was no black ops or Skunkworks test-bed. No military plane would ever fly this low over a very heavily populated area!

At any rate, we never reported it, as we figured no one would ever believe us. Now, years later, I found a video on YouTube that got my interest going again, and I found this website.

Finally, we at least can document the evidence that filled our windshield on that day in 1996.

FYI, the weather was completely clear.
