|Apparent fixed wing aircraft flying at a few thousand feet making no noise.
I was outside my place talking with my mother when I looked up and saw the outline of an aircraft somewhat in the shape of a triange. Basically, it was a triangle with no base, just the sides, much like a fixed wing aircraft.
These sides had dim white lights which were symmetrical on both sides of the quasi triangle. I would say there were 20 lights, 10 on each side, on the aircraft.
I couldn't make out the actual body of the aircraft, so there is the possibility it was several aircraft traveling in tandum. The general shape reminded me of the F-117 stealth aircraft except there were no blinkers on the craft or other lights of any kind other than the aforementioned.
I waited several minutes expecting a sonic boom or other loud noise, there was absolutely no noise. I would say the object(s) was traveling at an altitude of 2-3000 feet, that would be my best guess.
I only wish I had a camera or video recorder with me.
