Triangular shape no noise

On the night of December 20th between 7:35 and 7:40 pm, I was walking my dog and happened to look up towards the west and see movement. I thought it it was a shooting star or possibly a meteor shower. I had seen a shooting star two nights prior. I tried to focus to see if there were more when saw what appeared to be an outline of a black triangular or wing shaped object moving silently overhead. I thought it may be a flock of birds, but it made no sound was moving faster than flocks of birds that I had seen during daytime and the shape appeared to be steady. The sighting only lasted about 5 seconds. I lost the object when it flew towards some clouds. The conditions were partly cloudy with some illumination from the moon. Per intellicast the weather conditions were 33 degrees wind chill 25 visibility 10 miles and ceiling of around 5000. Per my phone compass, the shape moved west to east. From my perspective looking up, the “wingspan” was about 9 inches. The shape was below the clouds.
