Duration:3 seconds
I saw a black triangular object for 3 seconds pass behind a small cloud never to reappear

I was playing basketball with my son on our driveway, back by the garage, at around 7:55 pm, when my attention caught this black triangular object in the southern sky, not overhead and not on the horizon, but in the middle but more overhead.

I saw the black triangular object with three lights at each point for no longer than 3 seconds. It was rather large, perhaps the size of the moon and a small cloud was in its path. It passed behind the small cloud, and I could see the lights become covered by the small cloud, but when I expected the object to reappear after passing over the small cloud, it did not reappear.

Also, the vector movement of the triangular object in a straight line was not related to one point moving forward or one side moving forward. When the object disappeared, I also noticed that the small cloud developed and became somewhat thicker. There was no opportunity to visually record the event as it happened so quickly.

I have never witnessed any thing like this before.
