Black chevron-shaped object with no lights observed over Lexington, Ky at night

I was standing in front of my house watching the lunar eclipse when I became aware of a chevron shaped object in my peripheral vision, moving southwest to northeast. It was black with no lights and I was only aware of it because it was a bit darker than the sky because of the full moon. As it traveled across the sky, there was the faintest of sounds, but it wasn’t the sound of an engine or any thing like that. It was the sound of air being pushed out of the way, like if you were spinning something heavy in a circle using a rope. It traveled across the sky as far as I could see southwest to as far as I could see northeast before disappearing across the rooftops. I have no idea about the size because I couldn’t judge altitude. It appeared to be large and far away, not small and close. It travelled about 3 miles in 8-10 seconds, which would mean a speed of over 1000mph, but there was no sonic boom.

I’m a 52 year old software developer with pilot training and good eyesight. I have no idea what I saw. Definitely not a plane, not a drone. Not a flock of birds.
