Single silent V-shaped ufo seen in southern sky over Eureka, Ca. at about 8pm on Jan. 20, 2007.

Between 8 and 8:30 pm on Sunday Jan. 20, 2007 I was standing on the deck at the south side of my house in Eureka, Ca, looking south into the night sky. What I first thought was an airplane or helicopter moving slowly north for about 15 to 20 seconds then began to change direction more to the north east. I thought, it must be correcting for landing an Arcata/Eureka airport in McKinleyville. It traveled on its new course for about 10 more seconds then seemed to change course again and head south. As it moved away, the lights got dimmer and flickered like a cloud was crossing in front of the object, and then the lights went out completely. 1 or 2 seconds later, I saw a grey wedge-shaped object flying with its right edge downward, west towards the ocean. It looked much larger than a plane, but was not making any noise and no longer had any lights on it. I waited for a loud noise of a crash when I lost sight of it behind the tree line but didn’t hear anything.

What caused me to report it was that it didn’t seem like it should be able to travel across the sky on edge. (No lift…?)
