|My daughter and I went out to look at the lunar eclipse that was to take place at 11:00pm. We were looking in the sky for the moon and couldn't find it. We were watching a low flying, large airplane that was flying overhead which is unusual for this area. My daughter looked down to talk to me and at that time I saw 2 triangles sort of adjoining or maybe it moved so fast it just looked like two. It just suddenly appeared (maybe it was behind a cloud?) and before I could tell my daughter to look into the sky, it sped off at a right, upward angle into the night. As far as the size, it is hard to describe because of how high it was, but compared to the airplane it was about 1/4 to 1/2 the size of the low flying ,large airplane that had already passed us. It did not look like it was following it - but who knows it disappeared rather quickly. I could see a trail of light as I watched it, but it didn't leave a trail in the sky. I am truly amazed and blown away because I have always wanted to see something like this.
