Description: Driving to work one morning on northbound on Hwy 29 between Lakeport and Upperlake California I saw a black triangle in the sky. It was heading south obove the hills of Upperlake. Size, unknown. Distance unknown. The color was flat deep black that gave no indication of surface textrure. It stuck out in the sky but with no clouds it was impossible to tell if it was close and the size of a small plane or farther away and large. If I had to guess I would say it was 20-30 feet long. It seemed to be heading S SE heading nearly opposite of my direction, only slightly to my right. It slowly turned, banked and did a medium wide turn and started heading north north west towards the city of Willits California. It visibly above the horizion of the local mountains so I could not tell if it was small in the valley or farther away and high. My gut feeling is that it was high in the valley and was moving slower than a small plane. I opened my windows but could not hear any discernable noise at 55mph beyond my car noise and the UFO disapeared over the horizon 1 minute later.
from front the triangle looked like a V, only with each leg of the V at 90' from each other, with a central bulb.

From the left side it was a elongagted triangle perhaps 4 times as long as it was high, with squared off tail.
There where no discernable lights or cockpit. I believe it was a remote controled drone of the Airforce judging by it's black and anglular shape would be ideal for avoiding enemy radar. the dome cigar in the middle could have been an derrigible to gain lift or was possibley the engine and electronic hardware.
The date I'm guessing on. It was the morning that there was talk on CNN about all the people coming from Europe traveling to the US for the predicted first meeting of aliens and Earth, and so I happend to look up, and amusing thought, "would be funny if that was them..."
My feeling when looking at the object was not of ET, but of a very cool as classified recone vehicle. the Air Force is known to test secrete planes in Northern California shortly before active deployment, and that is what this liekly was. But thought I would post the info anyay. Anyway I can draw a pic and upload it here? I can draw it better than describe it.
UFOINFO Note: I have asked for a drawing of the object but nothing received to date.
