Shape: Chevron
Duration:4 seconds
Black bat shaped object flying low, and slow, and silent, with no lights.

I was relaxing in a hot tub with two friends, when I laid my head back and was looking up at the night sky. I was facing north, as was one of the other guys. The other friend was facing south. I noticed the object to my left. It was mat black, made no sound, and was about the size of a small plane.

Flying north at about 30 mph. It was only about 40-50 feet off the deck. The bottom was visible because the street lamp illuminated it. It was that close. I could've hit it with an arrow.

I pointed at the thing and said "look". The man next to me saw it, but by the time the other guy turned around to look, it was no longer visible from our position.

We decided not to discuss it until we went inside and drew what we saw. We then compared drawings, and they were the same. They showed a black boomerang shaped craft with bat like wings. What struck me the most, was the absolute silence and slow speed.
