|Low flying aircraft - no flashing lights - no sound - travelling at speed
I was sitting outside in my backyard, stargazing. The conditions were clear with gusty winds. Visibility was good. I was looking to the northwest. A movement and light, coming from the west, caught my attention: I looked up, a few degrees north of the zenith and saw what I initially thought to be a meteorite travelling eastward. I realized it wasn't a meteorite - it was arrow-shaped with a blunt nose and resembled a military aircraft but it was completely silent. There were no flashing lights but cast a dull reddish-bronze light which illuminated the entire underside. I could see the general shape only because of this glow.
It was travelling at high speed. It did not turn, nor change direction but continued to fly in a straight trajectory overhead, towards the north.
It appeared to be flying at a low altitude.
