Witness statement: It was, I believe, the night after the full moon in May. I had a small telescope and I was trying to get some good views of the moon. I also had a night vision monocular, a PVS-14 with a 3x magnifier on a tripod with a video camera attached to it and a set of night vision goggles, PVS-7D (Delta’s) around my neck. I usually have the goggles with me if it’s a clear night out. There were no clouds that night. I was looking through the goggles and noticed a “plane” coming toward me from the north, heading south.
It was relatively low, 5000 feet or a little less. I’m pretty good at estimating distances, I’m a experienced skydiver and long distance shooter. I thought it was a little weird that I wasn’t hearing it coming towards me, Doppler effect, so I started recording on the PVS-14. I probably noticed it when it was maybe at a 75* angle. As it was passing over me, I still heard NOTHiNG! No sound what so ever. So I’m trying to look at it through the goggles and record it with the monocular at the same time. As I’m watching it, I notice that as it’s passing stars, I could see stars through the craft!!!!
