Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 seconds
I stepped outside to look at the clear moonless sky. My location is 10 miles west of Intercontinental Airport Houston IAH. I have never before seen anything in the sky that looked strange, but I saw a V or triangle shaped greyish object with no sound or lights against a dark sky gliding pretty fast north to south, then turning southeast when directly over me. It flew perfectly smoothly and was headed in the general direction of downtown Houston or Ellington Air Force Base about 25 miles away. Its form was static like a plane and seemed to be gliding at a few hundred feet, or perhaps flying too high to hear. At age 70 this was a first for me - I don't believe in extra-terrestial UFOs, but this was truly amazing to see.
