Clear and close look at unknown flying craft

Hello, In mid May 2000, I was finishing a half hour jog and came to rest on the steps of an apartment building in the 1600 block of West 11th ave in Vancouver BC, to cool off and catch my breath . I was facing north and it was a semi clear night with lots of small clouds. I was ready to get up and head home and noticed something which I thought were clouds moving above a taller apt. building. I realized what I was looking at weren't clouds but a craft of some sorts. This was the best view I had of this craft. Even with an excellent veiw of this, I became terrified when I could not identify it, and was able to continue viewing it as it nearly flew above me. It was traveling south (up pine st. just a half block to my left) and low to the ground (1000 ft) having no sound, and a smooth fast flight path. It was black and white (or grey). I remember thinking it was odd because at times all i could see were the lighter parts, it blened well with the few clouds out that night. My first idea was, that it was a stealth plane. It seemed to be the only match as in size shape. It disappeared from my sight (the apartment buildings blocked my vision from it). An intense fear over came me, due to having a good look at something so unfamiliar. I was extremely close to an unexplainable craft. (?) I had dismissed the sighting as perhaps a hang-glider. When telling this to friends and family, they say that a hang glider would be unlikely. (what are the likely chances of some one hang gliding or gliding over that area that time of night?) When reading a recent sighting on www.ufobc.org web site, "2000 - Boomerang-shaped Craft Over North Vancouver " It re-created the experience for me, and every description in that article, along with the date and time is too close for comfort to forget about. I beleive the incident is related. I may have seen it after the witnesses claim to, in the afore mentioned article.

((NUFORC Note: We will direct the witness to UFOBC in Vancouver, B.C.. PD))
