Enormous silent relatively low flying V shaped air craft flew over my home.

At the time I had no idea who to report this to nor if Id be taken seriously so only told a select few people before now. I was a night shifter, on August 3rd 2012, at approx 1:33am I arrived home from work. I was getting out of my truck to go inside my house. That night after I got out of my truck I had tilted my head up to exhale smoke from my cigarette and noticed a gigantic slow moving V-Shaped silent flying object flying over my home, about 25ft from being dead center to my home. At the time I thought it was a military training exercise or something because it wasnt like any kind of ufo I had heard about prior to that. I had only heard about shiny bright metallic objects or something. This thing was absolutely pitch black with contained lights equally spaced on the front of each side of the V. Once I noticed it I ran inside to get a camera, I came back out of the house and it was slowly disappearing behind the tree line that is directly across the road. This thing was about 100ft to 200ft off the ground, silent and pitch black besides the contained lights. It was approx 200-300ft wide from my angle. I could tell the shape and color due to the low elevation, difference in color to the skies above it with the moon illuminating the clouds above it. The following day 2 low flying Military helicopters with soldiers manning mounted machine guns in the open side doors flew over my house.
