Location: Benton, AR
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 seconds
I was taking long exposure pictures of Sirius/Orion's belt/Betelgeuse, when I noticed something flying near my field of view from the south. At first glance it looked like a kite, triangular in shape and white in color.

It flew northbound and when it was directly above me, I knew it wasn't a kite, drone, or bird. There were no lights on the object and no sound.

It disappeared shortly after into the clouds (partly cloudy that night) and I heard the birds in that direction start to chirp wildly.

My camera was mid exposure on a 30 second shot and the object flew just outside the left side of the frame. Unfortunately, even with an ultra wide 14mm lens on at the time, I was unable to capture anything.

The whole event lasted no longer than 10 seconds.
