Viewed a delta shaped craft in the SE sky traveling south, craft made no noise and flew smoothly before banking and disappearing

On Nov 18, 1998 my best friend and I were observing the Leonid meteor shower. At aprox 24:00 movement in the SE sky caught my attention and I observed a grouping of three lighter area of color moving south. These areas weren't lights, merely lighter color reflecting ground lights. In between these areas there were no stars visible and you could just make out the shape of the craft At this point my friend also observed the object. The craft moved fairly quickly with no noise continuing south until it banked to the west and disappeared from sight.
