Shape: Other
Duration: 30 seconds
V-shaped, 3-D, glowing fast moving silent craft.

Object appeared in Northeastern part of sky. Object was "V" shaped, but obviously 3-dimensional. It appeared to be lit from the inside with no lights on the outside of the 'craft', however it seemed to glow. The color was a yellowish/light orange. It was heading Southwest, crossing the sky very quickly, but making no sound. The object didn't seem very high, maybe a few thousand feet, but it was difficult to determine since we had no idea what the actual size of the object was. It definitely was not a plane (that we have ever seen), a hangglider (no one hangglides in Madison, WI at midnight), an ultralight (it was totally silent and way too fast) and it wasn't a balloon (again, way too fast)
