was it a phenonmen ,usual star, or ufo?

1999 christmas morning, 3:30am-4:30am i was taking a friend home about two blocks away. on my way home, facing southeast, getting ready to make a right(west) when i noticed a triangle-shaped object suspended in air, it was positioned in the sky like the moon, but the moon was in the west-side of the sky. my first thought that it was a christmas ornament, but i said to myself that man can not suspend an object like that in air. it was a beautiful sight to see-golden luminous color like the same type of matter as a star. as i turned right to go home, i explored the rest of the sky in the direction going home.

what i saw then really scared me, there were look-like millions of them very far up, where they looked like regular stars. but i could still see the triangle shape, there were medium-ones in each corner of the sky-south, west, and north. i fled home after seeing that because i did not know what was going to happen.
