Huge, triangular craft with six white rectangular lights on the bottom witnessed in EastTennessee

At approximately 22:30, three friends and myself observed a large white light in the distance, that appeared to be rising upwards. After watching it we determined it was not rising upwards, but coming toward us. We then noticed a flashing red light approached the craft at the 1 o'clock position, and remained beside it for a moment, before moving ahead of the craft at about the 7 o'clock position. It steadily came toward us and we noticed that the small flashing red light in front of the craft appeared to be a jet, and the large craft was following it. As it began to move above us, we no longer saw the one large white light we had seen before, but we saw six fairly large white lights on the bottom of the craft. These lights were rectangular in shape, and looked very similar to flourescent lighting fixtures you would find in a garage or kitchen. The larger craft stayed very close behind the jet (obviously following its' flight pattern), but made no noise whatsoever. The sound from the jet's engine was all that could be heard. It was moving much too fast to be any type of balloon, or anything like that. As it got directly over us, we could make out a somewhat triangular outline, and saw what appeared to be a semi-circular shaft coming down from between the six rectangular lights. We wondered amongst ourselves if this could be some sort of secret military plane, and we noticed that the large craft had no flashing lights, only the six lights on the underside. This craft was extremely large and absolutely dwarfed the jet it was following. We watched the flight pattern as it seemed to be going back from where it came from. The flight pattern was almost a complete circle! We don't have any idea what we saw, but we wish someone has witnessed something similar, and will be able to provide a clue or two for us.
