Posted: 10/18/2018
Location: San Jose, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 seconds
Fast moving black triangle with no lights and emitting no sound heading northward.

I was taking my dog out for the night and looked up as I usually do. Some movement in the sky caught my eye and upon focusing I found I was watching an unlit object cruising through the sky northward.

The object banked slightly and I was able to make out a triangular shape. The object made no noise that I noticed and had no lighting on the bottom or sides. (or at all) The light pollution in the sky provided decent contrast with which to view the object. It moved quickly through the sky and was only visible for approximately 10 seconds. The object was moving substantially faster than any other aircraft I've seen to date. It appeared to be much higher in altitude than most other aircraft as well. (my viewing position was nearby an airport) Being close to the airport, I commonly see all manner of aircraft which is precisely why this one stood out enough to make this report. The speed of the object could be likened to a satellite transiting overhead.
