Location: Richmond, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration: ~30 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
White dots forming triangle with one trailing dot. Silent propulsion.

Was staring at the moon on a clear, cloudless night. Noticed a light moving towards my field of view. Then noticed there were multiple lights, moving in a triangle shape, with a single light trailing in the center, in a sort of arrow shape.

The lights were only a few hundred, maybe a thousand, feet off the ground. It moved relatively slowly considering, and was in my field of view for more than 30 seconds. What makes me certain it was either a UFO or experimental craft of some sort was that it was absolutely silent. There was zero noise detectable from the ground where I was standing. It just silently and smoothly cruised across the sky.

I have 20/20 vision, am 29 years old, and am gainfully employed in the IT field.

This is the first UFO I have EVER seen. I hereby swear that with the exception of the date and time, which I don't recall exactly, the entirety of this recalling is 100% factual with absolutely no intentional exaggeration whatsoever. My only regrets are my good camera was inside and I had aircraft with which to give chase.
