Location: Rockford, IL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 seconds
Black "shadow"(dim light outlined) triangular craft spotted gliding silently in night sky over Rockford, IL.

This is my third sighting. 1st: 10-29-10 19:10. West to East 2nd: 11-14-10 23:15. East to West. 3rd: 11-23-10 18:20 heading SE.

Saw from my yard in the city of Rockford, IL all three times. It flew right over my house each time.

"Black Shadow" craft was visible with both the naked eye and with binoculars. Binocular power: 50x10. Saw 1st and 3rd time clearly with binoculars for several seconds.

Craft was triangular with 10-20 dim white lights outlining the shape. Shape was very similar to a Stealth bomber. It was not a straight triangle. The "tail end" angled in equally from both sides towards the middle. (like one of those futuristic guitars) It glided smoothly and silently. Seemed low flying as it filled the entire viewing area within binoculars. Difficult to determine size in night sky with nothing to compare it to.
