Black small arrow head shaped UFO very high

I was sitting in the white plastic rocker on the patio behind the house today.

It wasn't too hot so I decided to sit out there and enjoy the sky, trees, garden, birds etc.

I had the rocker reclined a little bit and I had true polarized $20.00 pair of sunglasses on.

It was ten minutes after 6:00 pm this evening.

The Sun was up where the big tree is behind the storage barn and the tree was almost blocking the Sun which was partially behind the leaves and high clouds which enabled me to be able to look at the sky without the glare of the hot Sun drilling down this time of year.

This is when I saw it.

The UFO was very high at least 5 miles high, the same height that the higher passenger jets fly.

It was arrow shaped and black and it was slightly larger than this carrot character ` .

It traveled slowly threw the sky and it wasn't a bird or a jet.

It flew steady and slow and was shaped like an arrow head.

It traveled from west-southwest to the east-northwest.

I ran in the basement up the steps to grab my 12+ zoom Panasonic zoom camera in the dining room.

I ran back down to the patio and realized I needed my reading glasses so that I could see the settings on the dial on the camera.

I ran back up to the kitchen and grabbed them and then ran back down to the patio.

When I looked up I realized that I had left my polarized sunglasses on the kitchen table.

Without the polarized sunglasses the glare from the Sun was too great and I could not look up.

I ran back up to the kitchen and grab my polarized sunglasses and then ran back down to the patio again.

Sat back down in the chair put on my reading glasses so that I could see the icons on the camera dial.

Then I took the reading glasses off and placed my sunglasses back on and there it was.

As soon as looked back up where I saw the UFO to aim the camera it had vanished.

Damn, I saw it and it was there and I was going to zoom in on it and take photos.

I think it was a government type of aircraft and not an alien UFO.

I think the way the Sun was behind the high thin clouds and the tree leaves partially blocking the Sun and the polarized sunglasses that somehow had enabled me to see it.

Think they have discovered a way to bend light waves or absorb them it such a way that the aircraft can be rendered invisible to the human eye for the most part, at least that is the impression I got from the perspective that I was able to see it.
