"V" shaped light grey large object moving at a high rate of speed with NO illumination or sound.

Large, Grey "V" Shaped craft seen in the sky almost directly above Hastings Michigan. There were no lights. There was no audible sound. It was flying at high altitude. It was moving at a high rate of speed from Southeast to Northwest.

The "V" body of the object was strictly a "V" shape as stars and the contrasting darkness of space behind it was observable between the legs of the "V" where a known Bomber or other flying wing shaped aircraft would support a fuselage in this area.

The Object surface was not clearly discernible due to altitude and light conditions, but the overall outline was immediately defined as its lighter grey appearance passed across a darker black night sky.

It's color was almost that of a finger of cloud work in the night sky, but due to the maintenance of it's highly geometric shape/angle during its straight line flight path from horizon to horizon, as well as the speed in which it was travelling, there is no way for it to be mistaken for a cloud formation.

The Legs of it may have been segmented but joined due to a slight bubble leading edge observed as though scalloped. It could very well have been separate objects flying in a VERY tight formation, but overall it seemed to be a single piece.
