The triangle was shaped like a very narrow paper airplane. It was traveling at the same speed as the plane and was about half as long as the plane.
I watched the two fly above a cloud and then come out the other side. As soon as they hit the cloud, I ran for my phone but, by the time I got my phone on they were too far away to see on my camera.

I guess maybe it could have been one of their planes. The triangular shaped craft was either white or silver. It was not a like any plane or a helicopter I've ever seen.
