Shape: Chevron
Duration: 15 secs
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))
