Shape: Triangle
Duration: 3 seconds
I saw a semi transparent swept wing object travel from north to south in about two to three seconds that covered part of ursa major.

At aproximately 22:15 Friday night. I was outside, in front of my house, talking to my friend. I was standing facing North West, my friend was facing East, and I happened to glance up at the sky. in the direction of the big dipper when I noticed something that appeared almost shadow like in the sky moving at a high rate of speed. ( to describe what it was like is when you see a flock of geese flying in the night sky. or like what a comet looks like. It was about that transparent.) The object had no lights and was triangular or swept wing. Similar to the stealth bomber. But I could see through it as it passed in front of the stars as if it was like a ghost. From my vantage point it completely covered the end two stars of the handle of the big dipper. The object made no sound whatsoever. It was moving from North to South. ( I watch the international space station quite often and this object did not appear to be getting any reflective light from the sun) This object moved from North to South in two to three seconds. I do not know if it was in orbit or in the high atmosphere, or even ten thousand feet. I had no reference point. I turned my head from right to left as I followed it. And as fast as I could turn my head it was gone. Could this have been something military? That made no sound? My friend did not have time to turn his head to see it. This was the strangest thing I have ever seen.
