BOOMERANG shaped. no lights on craft. Nighttime sighting. DEFINITLY under intelligent control. utterly silent.

Lying down in a local park, looking at the stars, I witnessed what seemed to be a BOOMERANG shaped craft cross the sky directly overhead. The craft had no lights, but was quite large and easy to spot if one were to know where to look for it. Also the moon was just coming up over the horizon and was nearly full which is probably how I managed to see the craft, in addition to watching the backdrop of stars blink in and out as it traversed the sky. To get an idea of the size and scale I was looking at, extend your hand out above your head, and then create a distance of 3 or 4 inches between thumb and index finger. The craft was definitly under intelligent control and moved from North to South/Southwest. The craft was utterly silent. No sound whatsoever that I could hear. It appeared to be dark in color, roughly matching the color of the night sky, though just slightly lighter and greyer. I watched the craft traverse the sky overhead in a straight line for between 8-10 seconds, until I could no longer make it out against the night sky. Various other airplanes (with required lights of course) were in the area, as usual. None appeared to me to take notice.

There are three possibilities for what it could have been.

1. Could have been a glider flying at night (but I still think it was boomerang shaped) 2. Black military project. Stealth? 3. Unknown craft guided by unknown intelligence.

I had a similar, yet very different sighting about 7 or 8 years ago in october with a friend, of another silent craft that moved directly over our heads to the point that it filled half of the visible sky. Huge. only very tiny discreet lights. Could not identify shape due to close proximity. 6 second sighting as it crossed directly overhead from left to right(and again North to South) over the allyway we walked down.
