Black Triangle or dark colored unidentified object south of Nashville at dusk

It was around 6:40 or just a little after and I was walking into the Home Depot in Cool Springs just off of I-65. The sun was setting so it was not completely light out at the time. Two people, whom I didn't see, were walking out had stopped and pointed towards the sky looking at something and then left ( as I was later told). As I was almost in the door i heard another person say something like " look at that glider up there." So I walked back out in front of the store and tried to see the glider. Two other people now were looking at the "glider." The object was located east of where I was standing and was high enough to be visible from the light of the setting sun. At first it was hard to find but when I did I immediately didn't think that it was a glider, and by glider i mean hang glider. A glider would probably not be flying that high near a major city (Nashville air traffic flies right over the area) or when it was getting dark.

It was high up in the air, somewhere between 7,000 and 10,000 feet possibly, and was very dark colored, most likely black. It was triangular in shape. There were no lights on it to indicate it was an airplane or otherwise. It appeared to be moving very slowly north, northeast as best as I could tell.

One of the witnesses towards the end said "look theres two." The object or possibly objects either moved away or it was just too dark to see them after a couple of minutes.

Personally I am aware of Black Triangles and their observances near cities and interstates. I have never observed a "ufo" before, although I am interested in the subject. I wish i had a camera with zoom to take a picture at the time. I'll have to keep one with zoom on hand now just in case.
