Posted: 8/5/2012
Location: Bangor, ME
Shape: Other
Duration: 20-60 seconds
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Stubby boomerang shaped object with no lights, tan/orange in color.

The sighting took place in the center of downtown Bangor Maine. The skies were clear. I observed 4-5 (what I assumed to be) civilian aircrafts before the sighting, and 1 helicopter some time after the sighting. I was on top of an apartment building stargazing when I noticed the object out of the corner of my eye.

The object was fast moving and tannish-orange in color. I observed no lights on the object in the short time I had a good view of it. It's shape could be compared to a stubby boomerang with short wings. It wasn't following the flight path of any of the previously viewed aircrafts. It was difficult to tell the height at which it was flying, but it was flying at a near immaculate pace. I observed the object until it disappeared into the night sky, which leads me to believe the object could have possibly been reflecting the color/light from the city glow.

Additional observation: the object, while it had no visible light emitting portions, appeared to have translucent gem-like fixings. But I diddnt get a good enough look to say for sure.
