I was at 11,500 heading for home passing very near and south of R-2515 (Edwards AFB). I could see this large shadow in my 10:00 low coming right at me. At first I thought it was the shadow of a heavy above cast on to the ground but the shadow was clearly defined and not transparent. It took a couple of seconds but as it got closer I could make out the silhouette A very black U2 passed directly under me. That was a first!
I didn’t have time for a picture but two of my friends were on the same frequency. I can hear it now; “Yea right, I was a crow”.
Joshia, 01B. The traffic that just passed under me. Was that a U2? (I knew it was)

It took almost a minute.

My sighting was confirmed!
Not my picture but it looked like this one.
