Triangle Shape, no noise, no lights

I went out to place tape over an exhaust fan duct on the side of the house,to keep it from flapping in the wind. I do this just about every night. Nothing unusual. We live in a dark, semi rural area. There was a bright moon and quickly moving clouds at various levels. I was staring at the clouds as they passed over the moon and between all of this I noticed an odd 'triangular' form moving slowly east. I kept thinking it was another cloud, however it was not moving as fast as the wind was moving the clouds. Hard to see as some of the clouds were larger and blocked out the moon. I saw this shape about three or four times between the clouds and siluetted in the moonlight. I could not figure the size and it did not directly pass in front of the moon. It was 'off to the side'. Yet the object must have been solid as it blocked out light around it. No noise, no blinking lights, no lights at all. Just this odd black triangular shape, silently moving east. As I was w! atching it an "odd feeling" came over me. I became a bit 'un-nerved' and thought 'this is strange'. I've been thinking about it for a few days and started looking around the internet for information on unusual objects. I came across your website and thought I would add this event. It was most pecular and I cannot remember having such an "odd" feeling after having seen it. The 'feeling' has stayed in my mind more than the actual 'object'. So there are two related events, seeing this thing and a feeling I can only describe as 'haunting'. For want of a beter word. I never saw anything like it before. We live near an airport landing approach and planes are loud. This object had no noise and was higher than any plane (I think) in that I could not see any details. No wings, or landing gear. Just a shape. I ws watching it for perhaps four to five minutes? As it was moving slow, not like an aircraft approach. And moving east toward Mt. Baker. You can contact me via email. Thank You
