|My girlfriend, her friend, and myself were standing and talking out on my back porch looking briefly up at the stars, when we all saw what we, at first, thought was a plane. However, there were no aircraft lights, and there was absolutley NO SOUND coming from it. I could tell it was not at an extreme altitude, as its wings and fuselage were highlighted by the ground light around us. It was moving at a speed equivalent to a jet fighter, but again there was no sound at all. Almost simultaneously, we all said to each other, "what is that?". It then DISAPPEARED! I couldn't belive what I just saw, and my two friends said they saw it disappear as well. We watched for a while longer, but it did not reappear. At no point did we hear any "jet" sound. It was shaped like a "Y". I have never witnessed a UFO, but I think this is most likely a top-secret, very advanced military aircraft. Incidentally, there were a few distant aircraft in the westward sky, with normal identifying aircraft lights, but no were close to or seemed to be following this aircraft.
((NUFORC Note: We will request more information from the witness. We would like to rule out the possibility that the object might have been a satellite. PD))
