Location: Austin, TX
Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 minutes
Faint translucent triangle covered in tiny lights.

Went outside to drop the trash in the dumpster, when a strange, translucent triangle thing flew over my head. It was moving in a straight line from South to North and disappeared from view on the horizon. Completely silent, and it wasn't glowing brightly at all. More like a subtle glow emitted from a hundred little lights covering the surface. It looked as though you could see the night sky in between the small lights. Almost like a faint constellation floating across the sky.

There were airplanes in the sky going from West to East towards the airport. The UFO looked like it was at a lower altitude than the planes. I would guess that it was maybe 20 feet across, but hard to tell since I don't know how far away it was. Even though it was moving in a steady straight line, it seemed almost organic (but I can't figure out why it 'felt' that way. The only rational explanation I can come up with is a B2 bomber flying with no lights and the engines silent. But why would it be flying over the city? And I would assume it would look more opaque if that were the case. I'm very skeptical when I read about other UFO sightings, so this experience really took me by surprise.
