Saw arrowhead shaped object, no light, pass near the area of sky with the moon. Object was lit by moonlight or would not have been noticed.

Saw arrowhead shaped object, with no light, pass very near the area of sky with the moon. It took about 2 seconds to cover the distance of the diameter of the moon. The object was moving approximately from west to east. There were no clouds in the sky at the time. Object was lit by moonlight or would probably have not have been noticed. I would have thought it was a cloud by the general coloring and appearance if it were not for the fact that it was extremely symetrical, it did not change shape or fade, and there were no other clouds present in the sky. The size of the image was about 3/4 of the size of the image of the moon in the sky. I'm just curious if anyone else saw something that night in the Pittsburgh sky. A few seconds after witnessing the event I did hear what sounded like a loud jet, but I live in an urban area with a great many noise heard from multiple sources.
