Bright lights shaped as a triangle

We had pulled into the driveway of the house and decided to sit out in the car and talk for a bit. While sitting there talking I had noticed 3 very bright lights,shaped as a triangle, hoovering over the neighbors house. The lights were entirely too bright and close to be stars. I immediately asked my friends what it was. We knew that the lights were too low to be any air plane, especially everything that had happened in the past month. As we watched the lights, they began to slowly fade away leaving no trace of existence. We had decided to call my two friends mom and she told us to come over there. We haven't seen anything since then, but it's only been a couple of hours. But from the stories we heard tonight, this isn't the first sighting that people have seen around this area and it more than likely won't be the last.
