Fast moving boomerang shaped object

A large boomerang or chevron shaped object flying east to west. Altitude/air speed unknown, but it was moving very fast and it was large. No sound. It was blacked out with no running lights. The shape of the object against a background of stars was the only thing that gave it away.

As I watched it fly overhead and turned west to watch it fly away, a smaller and faster object from the Northeast flew in behind it. All of this was over in 5 seconds.

I'm 50, x-military and have never seen anything like this before.


Hi Peter,

It was 2x the size of a full moon, however boomerang shaped and completely dark, but duller than the night sky. I picked it up almost directly above me at 70 degrees and followed it to about 140, until I lost it.

It blocked star light as passed. It was moving very very fast and the size / speed / altitude did not equate properly in my mind based on anything I've previously experienced. Then something smaller with a dull white light closed on it from a few degrees North East. It all took 4-5 seconds max. There was no sound.

The only think I equate it to would be a B2 at 2,000 feet traveling at Mach 10 with no sound. Impossible.

I don't know that I'll call the media, but I will be checking local media for any other reports over the next few days.
