Location: Atwater, CA
Shape: Other
Duration:20 SECONDS
Black soundless trapazoid with small dim underside lights, seemed like camoflage. Gliding quickly.

I don't know who else to report this to, but I saw a bizarre object at about 7:45 pm PST this evening (Nov. 9) in Atwater CA. I was in my back yard when an object caught my eye, moving in a SE direction. At first I thought it may be a meteor streak, but was stunned to see it was a silhouette of an object, dimly lit at the outer part with individual lights the size of background stars, the object appeared to be the shape of a trapazoid moving sideways. It seemed to be a few hundred feet off the ground, gliding rapidly and completely without sound. It would seem to me it would have been seen by others, as other aircraft were in the air at the time. I don't what I saw, whether it is experimental craft or what, but it seems strange to me that experimental craft would be zipping down the Central Valley without strobes with other planes in the air. Regardless of what the explanation is, what I saw was really quite stunning.
