Faint amber colored, Triangular shaped object with moving spheres within the structure

Saturday night, my wife and I with a friend went out to eat at the Carrabbas resturaunt in Greensboro, NC. We had a two hour wait, and we waited outside. We were sitting on the bench looking out to the north and I noticed a very, faint amber colored triangular shaped object moving to the southeast. The UFO phenomena has always interested me and I am always looking in the sky, but most of the time I am able to rule out a classic UFO. 99.9% of the time I can identify it, but this time, it was strange. As it got closer, to overhead, but not completely I noticed that within its triangular structure it appeared to have many spheres or "orbs" interchanging within it. The entire craft remained the faint amber color, although the spheres appeared to be more translucent. My curiousity in the object, attracted a crowd who also were waiting to go inside and they all saw the same thing, including my wife and friend. One lady even let out a startled yell. A few gasps were also heard. Out of the group of us who witnessed the event one lady said that they were just ballons, but the size of the object at that altitude would have meant the balloon cluster would be huge, and it retained a definitive shape, at least the outline did, the rest of the craft did appear to morph somewhat. We watched it as it went off in the distant night sky toward the southeast, towards Fayetteville, NC. I'm not sure of the altitude, I approximate it at probably 1000 feet or so. The first sight of it looked like a jetliner with its lights on coming into land, but shrouded by heavy cloudcover(thats what the shape appeared as intially) It was a clear cold night, only high level cirrus clouds were barely visible. It was not a helicopter, jet, or hot air balloon or geese. This was clearly unidentified, in my opinion. I have also reported this sighting to MUFON.
