Triangular Object - Silent - No lights - Low Flying - Light colored markings on underside

On 11-19-03 at 10:41pm central time, me and a friend were standing behind the house we were at. We had gone outside to look for falling stars as it was a very dark and clear night. The moon wasn't very bright and I don't think it was anywhere near where we were looking.

We were talking about UFOs and such, all of a sudden in a completely coincidental and serendipitous moment, a triangular object came into our field of vision. We were standing close to the house, so it appeared to come from over the rooftop and then flew in a straight line from south-east to the north-west. I was only able to see it for about 5 seconds as it flew over the tree line behind me. There were tall pine trees all around me and the object was about 2 to 3 times the height of the tree top level.

There were no visable lights and it was completely silent. At first my brain thought I was seeing a falcon gliding or a hang-glider, because of the speed, height, and smoothness of the way the object was flying. but we quickly realized it was a large object like a craft or something. It was too slow to be plane, too fast to be a blimp. It appeared to defy gravity. It was so quiet i could hear everything around me. the slight hum of the street lights, etc. You WOULD NOT have seen this thing unless you just happened to be looking at the exact spot that we were looking at at that exact moment. It was a one in a trillion shot! It was so dark, as was the sky that night, so it was very well camoflauged. I say triangular, but i could only make out 2 sides of the triangle in the dark sky, so I don't know how the back of the object was shaped. It could have been a triangle or a diamond. The back was just too dark to see anything.

I had the feeling it was a top secret military craft that was maybe on a test flight just to see if anyone would report seeing something that night. I wouldn't be surprised if I was the only one in the city to see it that night. I just happened to be looking for something at just the right time in the right patch of the sky. But it had white or light-colored markings on the underside, they were on the left and the right side. They were symetrical, about 4 or 5 white spots or streaks running down the left and right side. They seemed to defeat the purpose of hiding the craft, but they were on there non-the-less. I am including a sketch.
