Flying wing, very large, silent.....

While hot tubbing at my residence in North Las Veags, I was checking out the night sky which is what I usually do when I spa. Directly above, I noticed what appeared to be an object with a flying wing shape moving in the direction of ESE. It had very faint amber aura on the leading edge and was blackish/brown in color...very difficult to see unless looking directly at it. It appeared to be huge, dwarfing any aircraft that I have ever seen flying, cruising high (est. 10,000+feet), moving swiftly and silently in a straight line. It covered alot of arc in the sky in a brief time, I saw it for about 10 seconds. I thought it could have been a B-2 bomber (I have seen them at airshows), but this seemed significantly larger...it seemed odd to me, but it was quite interesting to say the least.
