Reading text of Lufthansa Pilots sighting that night, jogged my memory, of my own sighting that night.

At 21:00 or so, i stepped onto my deck. It was crystal clear, cold night. looking up at the stars. I observed a dark (BLACK) chevron shape obscuring the stars as it moved silently and slowly, across the cold night sky.

Moving from north and traveling due south, it made no sound whatsoever.

Slowly, its shape 'cranked', as the wings began to swing inward.(like variable wing geometry type aircraft). Speed remained the same and noiseless.

As the shape of the object changed, it became slightly sleeker. I observed a peculiar fluorescent contrail rolled off the trailing edges of both 'wings.' It looked like two yellowish twirling pasta noodles, (each roughly 1\3 the length of the trailing edge of the objects wing'), that fell slowly away from the dark object.

These slowly grew darker, and dissapated, but kept the twirling, rolling motion, until they were completely gone.

Within about 1-2 minutes, it was out of sight and headed out over the water.
