saw in sky made no noise lots of flashing lights observed with telescope

I saw the object coming from the south, from the direction of the gulf of mexico. It was lighting up the whole sky, whole neighborhood. Curiously no one seemed to notice but me. I was outside with my telescope. I trained telescope on the object and saw triangular shaped object sitting on platform on top of the trinagle was a light flashing gold and white. Along the bottom of the platform was a row of blue and gren lights blinking in alternate succession. I tcame to stop across the street from where I was standing, approximately 75 feet away and about 60 feet up in the air. It was making no sound. I saw it clearly with the telescope. It left after about five minutes, shooting straight up into sky like rocket taking off and was gone in less than a second. Later it came back, the whole house lit up in inside with this bright golden light like you saw in episode of X files where mulder's sister is taken. Remember this was thirty years or more before the X files was even heard of. I saw three figures in our house, the classical big eyed, slant eyed greyish white aliens. But at that time I had never even heard of such a thing! my father saw these figues too, up closae since they were in his bedroom.
