Black low flying noiseless big triangular shaped craft seen during lunar eclipse
I was witnessing the lunar eclipse with a good friend among others at a place called "The Cross" which is a high hill in my city. As we were looking in the sky and doing some small talk, a person behind me said, "Hey, what's that?". I looked up directly overhead and saw a very dark, probably dark grey or black triangular craft, flying at about 300 feet overhead with a dull non-blinking white light on each tip of the triangle. The craft was noiseless and flying pretty slow, maybe at about 30-60 miles/hour. If someone hadn't pointed it out, I probably would not have noticed it. It was big though, probably around 60-100 feet wide. It passed over our heads in a straight line towards the eclipsed moon and looked as if it veered to the right before disappearing into the haze. Total sighting time was about 5 seconds. It was very eery and strange. I have a hard time believing that we have the technology for something to fly like this. The other two witnesses saw exactly the same thing as myself, but my friend convinced himself it was a flock of birds after hearing what we saw. I had my glasses on and was of sober mind, that is for sure.
Witness describes self as having consider technical training. PD
