Three silent lights pased overhead from north to south at a constant speed and position

On a clear night, partial moon, very quiet, a freind and I were on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River. We could hear sounds from far away, jets overhead at cruising altitude preceding their noise, dogs barking 1 mile away, ticking noises from the cooling car engine after it was turned off, etc. We saw an object with three lights, one at each corner or close to each corner pass silently overhead. The lights were not marker lights, not strobes, they remained constant. the lights were not beam lights, but rather seemed the size of one's fingernail on an outstretched arm. The color was a yellowish sort, rather like the color of street lights. There were no other strobe or marker lights required by th FAA on all aircraft flying in commercial airspace, and there was no noise. It passed in a straight path and constant speed overhead from north to south. We thought perhaps it was a stealth bomber returning to Whiteman Airforce base but the lack of lights and noise caused us to question it.
