Duration:8-10 seconds
Observed was a black boomerang/triangle shaped going east at approximately 500 miles an hour with no lights on at all.

On Thursday, November 15, 2001 at exactly 2100 my friend and I were standing on the balcony of the third and uppermost floor of his apartment building. I was smoking a cigarette and looking at the stars(The ground visibility was a little hazy, sky visibility was completely clear.) when I saw an object flying east almost directly overhead. It was shaped like a triangle, more so like a boomerang(my friend said like a giant glider.) It seemed to be about the same size across as a jetliner(without knowing exact altitude.) It was completely matte-black, not reflective at all, with no lights or beacons on it at all. It was darker than the night sky which was lit by streetlamps. It also made no sound at all, completely quiet. Its' rate of speed was comparable to a plane on landing approach, I believe. It flew over our heads at a 120 degree angle. The downtown St. Paul airport is approximately 3 miles away from our location. There were no planes in the direct area where I saw the object. When I first saw the craft I immediately stopped the inane conversation I was having with my friend and pointed out the object. He saw it immediately and we both watched it fly out of sight over the building. We were both completely flabbergasted. The whole event lasted between 8 and 10 seconds.

My friend is a ((deleted))l engineer and I am a ((deleted)) officer. We both went to college at the University of Wisconsin. We are in our mid-twenties. He is married, I am not.
