triangular Shaped craft light in each corner seen on 4/2/03 Carlisle PA time 2145

It was approximately 9:45 PM on April 2,2003 my location was about 6 miles outside of Carlisle PA. I was star gazing and looked toward the Big Dipper when I saw what appeared to be a small cluster of meteors (shooting stars). I was following these lights for about 10 seconds and realized that it could not be meteors when suddenly to my amazement the UFO appeared low overhead. It was Triangular in shape with three large round lights in each corner of the craft were rounded. I watched as it silently glided across the sky for approximately 30 seconds as it headed South. I believe that there was most like several crafts that I saw enter our atmosphere however, I only viewed one close up. Definitely no mistake about this, the craft was to low to mistake it for anything other than what it was a UFO. I could not take my eyes off the one I was looking at. The lights were not bright they appeared to be dimmed so as not to draw attention although clearly visible and giving way to the shape of the craft. I did not see any color it appeared to be black.
