Appearance / Description of Object(s)
Nearly black triangle, possibly a slightly blue or violet tent. The underside appeared to be smooth and flat with no obvious features.
Size of Object(s)
I cannot not even estimate. It was either small, close, and slow, or big, high, and fast, but my first impression was something on the scale of a B-2.
Description of Area / Surroundings
suburban area 4 to 5 miles north of Luke AFB.
Full Description & Details
It was aproximatley 7:30 pm. The sky still had some light to the west. I was sitting on my back patio, when movement in the sky caught my eye. Something must have struck me as odd because I stood up and moved to investigate. The object I saw was a triangle, somewhere between an equilateral and a 45-45-90. The color was dark so it was fairly difficult to see even though it was nearly directly overhead. It was moving in a straight line consistent with the flight of an aircraft. I considered a B-2, but this object had no jagged trailing edge, and was dead silent. I then considered some sort of trash being blown aloft, but the winds at ground level were only slightly breezy. I also considered a kite, but dismissed it, due to the straight line progress of the object and again the wind didn't seem strong enough. As I watched the object it blended in completely with the night sky, it seemed to disapear. I continued to search the sky along the its projected path and was again able to make it out further along. I watched a few moments longer until again it completely blended into the night sky.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
It could have been some secret aircraft.

Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
I am open-minded in regards to UFOs. It doesn't matter to me from where the object originated. I'm just currious as to what it was. I don't read about UFO's but do enjoy the shows on the Discovery channel.
This object flew across the flight path of Luke AFB. The Luke planes fly from north to south, this object traveled from west to east, across the flight path.
