Kingston, NY Sighting

This event occurred at approx. 8 PM in the month of Sept/1994 on Delaware Ave, Kingston, NY where I lived at this time. I was called outside by one of our kids who ran in and said there was a UFO outside. When I got outside I looked in the sky at approx 80 degrees (facing south directly across from Immaculate Conception Catholic Church). I saw a very large triangular object relatively low in the sky. I estimate it's distance from me to be between 1000-2000 ft. I would estimate it's location to be over the Hudson River in an area just south of Kingston Point (near area where Rondout Creek meets the hudson, approx.) I would estimate it's size to be between 50-100 yards. It was very large. It hovered completely silent. It had 5-6 lights (white). 1 in each corner of a triangle and 1 between each corner. It remained in that position motionless for approx. 5 minutes. During this time people from the neighborhood were gathering in the church parking lot looking at the object. Many motorists were also stopping their cars and getting out to look at the object. The object then rotated to the left slightly (silently) (the lead point of the triangle was initially pointing east)and moved slightly forward then rotated again left slightly towards the NE then stopped and then proceeded to move in a NE direction slowly (10 mph?). It's path appeared to take it directly over the Hudson River in a northerly direction. After it cleared the trees and went out of sight, everyone went on their way. No police were observed in the area. I saw no media coverage on the event. I would estimate there were between 20-30 witnesses in my area of Delaware Ave. alone. Sky conditions were clear. I could not make out any surface characteristics as the craft appeared very dark.
