Shape: Triangle | Duration: 5 seconds

pitch black triangle shaped object travelling across the night skyI work graveyard shift on Texas A&M campus and went outside to smoke a cigarette. It was somewhere between 1:40-1:45 am. I was looking at the stars noticing that the sky was very clear. I was looking at Orion's belt when a very subtle "shift" or motion near it. It was very subtle, but as I focused my attention on it, I noticed it was a perfect v-shape. My instant thought was that it was geese because of the shape, but as I watched I was thinking to myself "no way" because it was travelling too fast, and the shape was a PERFECT v with no fluctuation.It appeared to be a solid V-shaped object, based on the subtle line of the edge I could distinguish. I could only for certain see the V edges, and not sure about a third edge. It appeared solid and uniform. I also could not make out any individual birds or wings, nor was there any sound that you would hear when geese fly by overhead. There was no sound at all. I have never seen a flock of geese fly so perfectly in a v formation and that quickly. It was black on black against the night sky. I could barely make it out and would have NEVER noticed if it hadn't come into a very small field of vision while I was looking at the stars.Even as I told myself it must be geese, something about it... I can't put into words ....made me feel like it definitely wasn't. It spooked me. In those few seconds my mind was racing to rationalize it. the V was, however, flying south-east, a direction I assume geese would fly this time of year. But it seemed to be a very large dark triangle/boomerang shaped object flying about the altitude of a regular plane and travelling quickly, maybe similar speed to some planes. I'm not good at giving estimates on size, or even distance in the sky, so could be unreliable on measurements.I only got about 4-5 seconds of being able to see it before it blended into the night sky/too far away. If it were geese, it seems like they would have been low enough to hear AND see (full or nearly full moon), and the speed was too great. I've never seen geese fly that perfectly in unison, either. Maybe it was military aircraft??
