Triangel in the sky

It was last sat night.10/13/01. My wife, myself and two friends where driving back from a haunted hay ride in poughkeepsie,NY. We where driving south on the NY state thruway back to NJ. It was a nice night and very clear. I opened the sun roof and was looking at the stars. As I was looking at the stars and saying how nice they where tonight, the others started looking at them too. Then I think it was my wife sitting in the backseat with her friend sayed look at that really bright star, she asked me if it was the north. I said no because we where looking east and low on the horizon. As I really looked at it, it appeared to move . I asked my friend to pull over. We stoped and really took a good look at this thing. Thier is no dout in my mind what we where looking at was no a star! It was moving in odd formations. So we thought it was a pland moving across the sky. But after a minute or two it was still in the same spot,but moving up then to the left , right ,down, it would even dim then become very bright again. Then move in ciculare motions, then dim out completely . Then BAM brighten up again.The shape of this THING was a triangel and very bright, I don't know what it was but.. It was something and I hope I have the oppertunity to see it again.

((NUFORC Note: If the sighting occurred "Saturday night" at "12:45 p.m.," we suspect the witness means Sunday morning at 0045 hrs.. We have changed the report accordingly. PD))
