Missile shape left mountaintop without sound or lights disappearing into a black cloud .

My father told me, a week later that he was standing outside about 1 a.m. scanning the hills in the full moon, which was behind him. He noticed a large missile shape with two smaller missile shapes attached on each side, standing on end atop the adjacent hill. It looked to be made of a yellowish metal in the moonlight. As he watched, it went up, without lights or sound, up into a cloud which was black. Then he got cold and went back into the house. It was about 23 degrees and crystal clear out. The 'cloud' was oddly black since it was not silouetted against the moon but should have been lit by it.
