Lighted Possible Triangular Silent Object Passed By My Complex

Hey if anyone is in southern Ca, NE of N. Hollywood...

I just had a very quiet pass by our complex! It was headed NE from here looked like it was going at a smooth clip but didn't seem too fast because it just glided through the air (my opinion) but I imagine it must have been going very fast. <--- Ok that sounds contradictory... what I mean to say is that it must have been going fast because it was going about as fast as one of theses LAPD choppers when they are cruising by but silent and I guess because of the lack of noise, it just seemed to glide by effortlessly which in my head made it seem like it was just strolling by.

Sorry i really suck at explaining this...

Bright white light... no blinking just solid Didn't have time to grab a camera but i did have binoculars nearby, through them, god help me I'm gonna say it... it looked triangular but that could be just what was exposed by the light. From what i could tell it seemed like the size of a Helicopter but in no way did it make me think it was one... just a size reference! The light on it was bigger than an LAPD chopper spotlight and it wasn't emitting a beam or anything, at least in my opinion... I see enough LAPD choppers at night to know the difference.

Unless he was running with no lights but that one and somehow made his chopper completely silent.

Made no noise whatsoever... I even started talking to it, saying "hold on", "come closer", sounds corny but I really wanted to communicate.

God, I'm shaking I'm so excited... this was about 20 minutes ago 8:20 pm PST Ok, so right after I typed this I heard some LAPD choppers over in the NE direction for awhile and then I heard them pass by my complex heading to what sounded to be in the SE direction.

I also noted that the whole time this was going on, including while I was typing this post my cell phone kept turning off and rebooting itself over and over again and stopped after I heard the LAPD go by. Could be the phone though... I hate my blackberry.

It couldn't have been LAPD or any other helicopter only due to the fact it seemed to be very close and made no noise at all.

I wish it had stopped for awhile
