Location: Natick, MA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:30 - 45 seconds
Completely silent, low flying almost translucent object.

While trying to identify stars and constellations, the first observer was looking in the area of Arcturus or ESE of our observation point. She remarked that she was seeing a triangular shape object approaching.

I was looking a little closer to straight overhead, when I observed the same shape moving in a straight and level path. It had a triangular shape, no lights, completely silent, and almost translucent. I could see the shape, and track the movement but it was would seem to almost disappear for short moments. I estimate it was no more than 3000 – 5000 feet above us and about the size of a jet observed from that distance. We both followed it until it went out of view behind a house. It was a combination of the complete silence and translucent appearance that we both observed that makes this something we have never seen before.
