Location: Los Angeles, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:40 seconds
Silent, gliding boomerang with no lights

It was more of a black/dark boomerang shape with a pointed tip, with one "wing" being about 60 feet long and 20 feet wide, and the other slightly shorter.

I and two people were in a rooftop pool when I looked and up and exclaimed, "What ((deleted)) is that?"

At that point the other two people looked up and saw it. There were no lights and there was no sound coming from the object. We noted that everything around us (city noise, etc) was absolutely silent.

It was hovering/gliding over us about 30-40 feet up (we almost felt we could jump up and touch it), and the outline could be easily made out against the stars in the background.

It came from the Runyon Canyon area, and was moving south, at less than a snail's pace.

Once it passed by the pool and cleared the edge of the building, it seem to just blur/distort into the city sky. We all jumped out of the pool to try to see where it was going, but we could not located it again.

Note: this happened a LONG time ago, and the dimensions are purely best guesses. I recall the circumstances and experience vividly, but the size thing is really difficult to say. It didn't really seem very big. Nobody had been drinking alcohol or taking drugs, and we were not disoriented by being in a heated pool.
