day light sighting of a dark triangle

I was just headed out to go see my dad. ok I was bowling with him on a league. I was walking to the store to get some smokes and I was watching crows fly over head. The crows fly over head every day at that time. So I was checking the birds out and I noticed one was not moving. The day was mostly clear and the object was easy to see. It was still and dark with no lights(day light) I could not see lights anyway. I looked at it for a couple of minutes when I figured I better get someone out here so I would not look like a freak talking about a ufo! Which I did anyways! So I grabbed a salesman at my work and we both looked at it for a couple of minutes. He ended up getting paged and I was left alone to look at it. I decided I better go to the corner store and get some smokes for bowling. When I got there I was in line talking about what was up in the air about 3000ft I guess. after I told a guy and the guy that worked there we all left the store to look at it. it was still there after all that time. the guy that worked there yelled something(arabic) and went back in! the other guy just was amazed and told me he always wanted to see one and now he has! I left back to my work which was just a couple of hundreds of feet away so I could leave because I was supposed to be with my dad soon for bowling. So as I walked back I was thinking of grabbing a camera the one that we use to take pictures of customers when they buy a car. but I figured I would take too long looking for it and I wanted to look at it a bit longer. As I looked at this dark triangle I noticed the bigger end looked like it had sharper wing like ends to it. It didn't move this whole time. It just sat there over highway 99 and just was quiet and still as can be. One thing I noticed was when I took my eyes off of it, it was hard to find right off. It was clear to see when looking at it but you take your eyes off it for a second you had a little bit of focusing you had to do. I looked at it one last time and I must have blinked because it was gone! just a slight vapor spot not strip like you see with jets.
