Triangle or boomerang shaped silent craft over Butte Montana March 2, 2006 19:15 local

I was walking my brother's cat on the Montana Tech Campus in Butte, Montana. This is something we often do. Between buildings there is not much light and I was admiring Orion in the southern sky as it was extremely clear and bright. A motion caught my left eye and I turned to the east in time to see a "boomerang" or triangle shaped dark object moving against the fixed stars. It was black or unlit except for reddish glowing lamps pointed in the same direction as its flight...there were three to 5 of these lamps...It was moving swiftly, at an altitude of 250-500 feet and was very large. It was totally silent. I especially listened to hear engines because I have heard others have seen these things and I suspected they might be some kind of slow moving blimp, but this was not moving slowly. In a few seconds I lost the backround stars and lost sight of it.

I also lost the cat and after wandering around an hour found her cowering behind a building air conditioning unit. She is also rattled and is hiding under my desk as I write this report. I work here at the university.
