Duration:30-45 seconds
Opaque "V" outline.

Mid-fall, daybreak. Saw a "V" formation slowly appear in view. I was standing next to the garage, having a cigarette. The garage blocked my view of where this formation originated.

At first thought a flock of geese. When it slowed, nearly stopped in front of me and just over my head (15-20Ft above my head, approx 20-30 ft in front of me) There was no flapping of wings, no individual movement(s), no sound. The "V" was a perfect formation of other interlocking "V's. I saw what I believe was the outline of this object. As mentioned, it hesitated as if seeing me there in the shadows of the garage surprised it. It was slightly tipped upward, as a jet would be when taking off. It seems to elevate quickly w/little forward movement and started to move forward. My next thought was Oh Oh it's going to hit the maple tree (A huge tree!)....I heard a soft "whoosh" of air, felt no air movement. Disbelief when it went right ! through the maple tree, I ran and saw it briefly reappear, on the other side of the tree, it was still tilted upward and moved faster then I could follow it. It then dissapeared from my view.

Noticed no lights. Basically, the outline was interlocking "V" formations, repeative chevrons/boomerange forms. It was not that large, perhaps 30ft wide at its widest, and equal in length from it's tip to mid-span end. The "V's" were or seemed to be a matte black, not shiney. I did not notice any thing solid between the "V." It looked like an outline of a craft more than a solid craft.

Tryed to wrap my mind around what I saw. It was not geese or any other bird formation.

End of Story. Oh This happened in the fall of 2009.

I became horribly ill approx. 3-4 wks later. (It was not the flu.) I cannot attribute this illness to this sighting. I have not totally recovered and it's been approx. 6 years. When I initially became ill, and after some tests a doctor asked me whether I had been exposed to radiation in some form or another. Definitely end of story. Just a tidbit that I found interesting.
