Unlit crescent shaped craft viewed from coastal town

We live in a coastal town two blocks from the bay. Walking home from a restaurant about 10:30 I stopped on a darkened street to look at the stars because the night was so clear...after a minute or two I saw a distinct but not lit up crescent shape travelling in a southwesterly direction. It was in view long enough for me to say "Oh my God!...look right there, it's not lit up" My husband saw it then and said the same thing. The only reason we could see it were the city lights reflecting off of it...and because we happened to be in a very dark place..there were no lights from it. It was not a plane or a kite or a bird, etc. It moved across the sky and out of sight in about a minute. My husband commented that it couldn't be that high for the lights to reflect off of it like they did. It was also two or three fingers wide at arms length...not so small.

I don't know if it's relevant, but when I first stopped and looked up I caught sight of a meteorite. Then just a minute or so later the crescent shaped craft came from exactly the same direction that the meteorite had ended.

Also, it was going in the general direction of a Naval Air station not far from here.

I just want to say it was not a triangle or chevron shape, it was a perfect crescent...with the round part as the leading edge, the points to the back. )
