Incredible flying triangle of immense proportions with unbelievable speed and eerie stealth!

I was gazing into the early morning sky at around 03:00 during the time that Haley's comet was supposed to be seen, hopeing to view what was supposed to be visible by eye. It was a very clear, quiet night with no moon visible. As I was looking southwest I noticed movement in my periferal vision from the west and glanced in that direction. I was stunned by what I saw. An object traveling from the west to the east was blocking out the stars in the sky as it flew past at an extremely high rate of speed directly over my head. The object was triangular in shape with the widest part being wing tip to wing tip. The shear size of the object took my breath away. It flew low to the ground, less than 600 feet. From wing tip to wing tip I would estimate it to be 300 yards across. From nose to tail approximately 100 yards. It appeared to be rather flat from top to bottom, no more than 20 yards thick. All of the edges seemed rounded, not sharp or crisp. This object had no external lights that could be seen from below. It had a dark, dull metallic sheen similar to the dull side of aluminum foil which reflected city light from below. It's stealth and speed was nerve shaking. As it passed I looked for exhaust flames, ports or vapors and I was astonished that there were none. I waited for the sonic booms to follow as I new that this aircraft was traveling in excess of Mach 1. I have seen small Air Force jets at Mach 1 or greater and know the speed and sounds they create at those speeds. This huge object flew faster than any aircraft I have ever seen and did not make a sound, not even a low rumble. There was nothing but silence. I was in awe and disbelief of what I had witnessed. I stood there for 30 minutes or more hoping to see another flyby and still contemplating what I saw and if I really did see it. The total length of time of this brief veiwing lasted no more than 5 seconds. I waited for days to read something in the newspapers to verify what I saw by others. I lived very close to March A.F.! B. and t hought that surely they picked this craft up on radar and would leak something. I have told only a select few friends of what I witnessed that night, not wanting to be labled as crazy. They think I'm crazy. I just happened to be at the right place at the right time, looking up at the sky. What prompted me to write my account at this late date was an account by someone else that was very similar to mine, who posted with your site. The occurance date was 4/27/2001, location-Alpine, CA. and Triangle shaped. My mm/dd/yy may be off slightly as I am not sure of the exact date but I can pinpoint very close due to certain events that took place during that time. Haley's comet was to be visible by eye and a certain pilot of a famous politician or celebrity died in an experimental aircraft testing crash in the Nevada desert I believe. I am an honorably discharged veteran of the Air Force and have seen many of our government aircraft including the stealth bomber and stealth fighter aircraft as well as the SR-71. This craft is none of those or even close. I only hope that it is one of ours, if it's not, we are seriously outmatched!
