Further Description of Sighting: Standing outside in my backyard and admiring the clearness of this night sky of the stars with a buddy, then I notice a delta shaped (Boomerang shape, but not spinning) flying North from San Francisco over Petaluma and bearing to the right towards Sacramento, Ca. It was a yellow-gold illuminated shape but appeared to be semi- translucent and very dim compared to the stars and a plane flying in an opposite direction towards S.F.
The UFO was traveling at a speed about as fast as civilian airplanes I have observed over the years. There was no sounds coming from the UFO. The lights did not flicker, no strobe light indicators or left and right indicator lights at tips of this flying wing. The underside was completely illuminated at about 1/10th the brightness of a star. Just a light halo of brightness. There was no moon out and it was way passed sundown at 2220 PST.
The wing appeared to be 5 times the size of the airlines plane that passed it either above or below. I could not tell the altitudes of either craft,, but the airliner was flying the same course that most planes in out area fly in when approaching S.F. Bay Area airports and the wing was flying in the opposite direction. I watch the planes all the time from my backyard in Petaluma.
My friend and I were both observers after I first spotted the UFO. It was about 15 to 20 seconds of viewing time. We both were in the US Air Force in the later 1960’s and worked on aircraft. We know shapes of the new stealth aircraft and this was a bit different and they are not illuminated like this craft was.
I don’t know if anyone else in this region saw this UFO, but I would like to find out if others have and what it possibly is.
