Black Triangle seen low over town of Manassas

I pulled into the parking spot in front of my home and happened to glance upward in time to see a large, black triangle passing over my house. I could only watch it for around 10 seconds before it passed over.

The aircraft was black or gray, with no lights at all and only visible due to the slight reflection of city lights on the underside. I could just make out circular patterns on the underside of the craft, one large ring or circle in the middle and smaller circles at each corner. I estimate each of the three equal sides were around 100 feet in length. The black craft was very low, just over the trees, making no noise that I could hear. The first thing that occured to me when I saw the black triangle was that it was man made, some sort of top secret black stealth. There are air bases, NASA, Lockheed Martin and government agencies dotted around the Northern Virginia and Washington DC area.

I can understand why a black stealth would fly low, to evade radar, but why would a top secret aircraft fly or hover over a city so early in the evening while people are out and about? This black triangle looks more advanced than any man made aircraft I've seen before, perhaps the fact that it looks alien provides a cover in itself. How many witnesses of the black triangle would risk telling others about their sighting? The risk of losing credibility from a black triangle sighting will keep many quiet, others may get labeled as UFO weirdos, perhaps the government is counting on this as part of the Black Stealth's cover.
