I was at the outdoor movie (drive-in) with my daughter. We were sitting on lawn chairs outside the car, when I noticed out of the corner of my eye a fairly low, dark object moving through the sky.
It was almost dark out (9:45 p.m. central time) I pointed it out to my daughter and she was somewhat scared.
The craft appeared as a dark, structured shape with more of a barely visible outline. No shape could be confirmed.
I initially thought the shape was triangular, but after thinking long about it I cannot confirm. It was like a shadow that was flying. The craft had no lights.
It was flying north, slightly northwest. It was kind of a hazy sky, but we watched it for about 5 seconds before it was no longer visible.
The craft was fast, but not unbelievably fast. I had a strange initial feeling as I watched it. My brain told me that is what a craft flying in the dark with no lights looks like; no big deal.
Then a fraction of a second later I was thinking this was not normal. No sound was heard from it. A plane that size should have been heard, even with the radio on outside for the movie. It was that close.
