I was at lower lamarke lake in the sierra mountains. i was just enjoying the scenery and resting from the three hour hike up to the lake. i saw an beautifully radiant silver object not too far above the craggy sawtooth peaks surrounding the lake. i watched it fly smoothly past. i kept thinking where are the wings? where are the wings? i then realized it was absolutely silent. commercial aircraft are not permitted to fly over this area of the sierra mountains. the object was about the size of a small commercial plane,but that is impossible. there is china lake base not too far away. on many occasions i have seen fighter jets from the base over the sierras, but they were never silent. my husband was concentrating on his fishing i tried to get his attention to look but couldn’t make too noise, because fishermen get mad if you’re loud. so he didn’t hear me. as far as i know, no one else saw it there were a couple other fishermen whose backs were toward the object. if it were a plane i would have been able to hear it, but i heard nothing.
