I saw a huge triangular object traveling at a high rate of speed while I was on my way to my evening shift at work

While en route to work on the evening of October 26th, at approx. seven thirty, I saw coming towards me a very large tiangular shaped object. It was dark out, save for a basically full moon. I could tell its shape by an outline of white lights emanating from its periphory. It was in a relatively remote area, between Roy Wa. and Spanaway Wa. on a stretch of road that traverses the Fort Lewis military reservation. As I was driving, it seemed to come straight towards me, at a very low altitude. My instinct was to pull to the side of the road, almost to get out of its way. Then it turned immediatly to its right (my left), and dissappeared. It was so low, it almost appeared to go into the tall trees that border the road. I have been traveling this route, which is in the immediate traffic area of Mchord air force base, for quite some time, and have seen a lot of different types of aircraft, but this thing was bigger than any jumbo jet. Its travel path was very strange during the short time I saw it. Its turning characteristic seemed very abrupt, very unlike conventional aircraft. Just thought this might be significant, in light of some other recent sightings.
