One light craft and 1(possibly 2) triangular crafts

A friend and I were driving to my house at approximately 2 am. We were driving south on a road near an elementary school and a small neighborhood. We first saw a ball of light hovering above the treelines. It seemed to me like there was a car stuck in the top of a tree with it's brights on, as we were driving past it, I noticed that is was cirular. It then ascended straight up, and appeared to be going southwest towards another neighborhood, I then sped up to about 60 miles per hour and watched it above more treelines. Then it disappeared. That whole part lasted only about 20 seconds. We talked about what was just seen, and continued driving back to my house, about 2 miles away, as we approached the airport area, we noticed a lot of activity in the sky. We counted approximately 9 helicopters, and about 7 smaller aircraft. As we came to a stoplight we noticed a huge triangular craft, that seemed about 1,000 ( I know it had to be more) feet above my car, I went to get out of my car, but my friend stopped me. We could see the underbelly of this craft, it was huge! It had red, blue, and white lights, none of which were blinking and made no sort of sound... also the craft appeared somewhat shiny. It was just heading north in a very slow fashion. My friend, who is in the Navy said it reminded him of a "Super-sized Harrier jet, minus wings." I have no idea what that means, but that is how he described it. This aircraft continues North and did a 180 in the sky, just like that turned a half circle and headed south, then we lost sight of it. we were about 6 miles from my house and were still counting other small aircraft in the sky. Right as we turned into the main road that leads to my neighborhood entrance, we was another one of the triangle craft. ( I am not sure if it was the same one, or a different one, if it was the same, it had somehow gotten to where we were without us seeing it) This craft seemed to be much higher than the other one, and it circled my neighborhood. It was still visib! le when we pulled into my garage. I personally was terrified, and called the airport. My friend went out back and tried to see if he could see anything through the trees. He could not. The lady at the airport was very frantic and hung up on me. So I did nothing else about it.
