Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Black Triangle, Thought it was an f-117a first, however, normaly military flight paterns around this area must have signal lights due to the amount of small aircraft from the Scottsdale Airport. Since this was at 00:26am, it was very dark, and the only way we spotted it was by movement and the disapearing of stars because of this object being infront of our vision. (plus the moonlight)
Size of Object(s)
About the size of a large aircraft. Was about 4 inches across from our view, but i suspect it was much larger.
Distance to Object(s) & Altitude
1.5 mile view, altitude = 1,500 feet.
Description of Area / Surroundings
Urban work area. Clear night, we saw it because of the almost full moon tonight.
Full Description & Details
Outside at approx 00:26am. Smoking a cigarette with one of my co-workers. He points due North and says "What the Hell is that?". I couldn't spot it at first. Then he pointed and i looked down his arm to where he was pointing, and I saw a dark shape moving very quickly through the sky, it had no blinking lights, and it couldn't have been a conventional aircraft as there was 0 sound eminating from the object. The only noise that we heard were the sand pipers running around in the street (Paradise Lane). Monitored this object for about 45 seconds when it banked to the North (away from us), but didn't vanish because it left our field of view, it vanished by disapearing completely. Then we were left with the empty, black, night sky. We spotted this object only because the moon was semi-full (whether waning or waxing, I lost my moon chart, but there was enough moon light to spot movement). Co-worker said that it had a silver underbelly, but I was too astonished to notice, I just remember that the object was a very dark color of black, because it wouldn't have been seen if the moon wasn't out. Again, at first I thought it might have been an f-117a Stealth making a test run, but again, in Scottsdale air traffic, whether it is military or civilian it must have lights on it for other pilots to easily spot it. There were no lights on this object. Airport is approx 1.5 miles from this location, so either it is a new kind of military plane that our Govn't is testing out (there is an airforce base here), however I really doubt that.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No. Defniately not. couldn't be an airplane, there was no sound. Couldn't be a baloon because the object was rigid and def a solid type object. Couldn't have been a chopper (again no sound eminated from this object).

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I believe in alternate life, or life that exists on a different plane of reality (astral plane, or mental plane, instead of the physical plane etc...) However I wonder if this concludes that there is intelligence beyond our own (we don't have aircraft that can completely disspear from the visual spectrum of light)
