Shape: Triangle
Duration: 5 minutes
Greyish black, long, narrow , triangular shaped ufo changed direction at a 45 degree angle.

The one craft seemed to be high in the sky but far away.

The colour was greyish black. It looked like a long and narrow triangle. It appeared that the craft was flying slowly in a northerly direction and then shot up very quickly at a 45 degree angle.

It flew up so fast that I could barely keep my eyes on it.

I was alone when I witnessed the craft.

There was no curviture in it's turn; it appeared that it changed direction on a pin head.

In that area the land is flat, lots of trees, and new subdivisions.

Beyond that it is rural area. My profession is a Legal Land Surveyor, and my eyesight is excellent. Since I was 8 years old my hobby has been studying military aircraft of WWI and WW2. I am extremely knowledgeable in the field of aircraft and I can say that to me this was a ufo.
