|My wife and I were on our balcony from 2:15am to 3:45 to observe the lunar eclipse. I had setup my digital camera with telephoto lens and had started to take photos as the eclipse was occuring.
At approximately 2:35am my wife saw and object flying SW (approximately 242 degrees) nearly over head. We both observed a black right triangle aircraft with its nose being the 90 degree angle travel at 200~240 knots in a steady continous glide.
There was no sound that we were able to detect coming from the aircraft. The underside had an array of dimly lit white lights and that seemed to be made up of smaller lights which I saw forming circles. There were no other visible markings or flashing lights or colors.
I did manage to track aircraft with my camera and I took 3 photos, but since I was set up to photograph the moon I don't seem to be able to find anything in the pictures.
As the aircraft traveled the lights seemed to get dimmer, which suggests to me that they may have been directional.
My wife and I decided to both sketch the aircraft and then compare what we saw.
