triangle object hovering above field next to me then dissappeared

my experince was on 12/12/03 in loves park , illinois around 17:30 - 17:40. i was walking in the country for my daily walk. i always look at the stars. i seen an object appear in the north sky traveling southward. it had 3 lights in a trianglur shape. it was moving slowly across the sky. it then hovered above the feild i was next to. it was maybe 100-300 feet off of the ground. i could see it clearly. it was dark in color. the lights were yellowish, i was kind of scared because i have never seen an object like this before. as it hovered i didn't observe any noise. not even a hum. it looked like about the size of a small airplane. it started moving south then all of a sudden it turned northeast in a fast rate of speed. then traveled northeast. there was a car that stopped to watch this object also. it then turned back southward then traveled really fast then all of a sudden just dissappeared. no sound what so ever. the lights were in a triangular shape, one light on each corner of the object. my sighting lasted about 20 minutes total but seemed to last longer. i have seen airplanes and satelittes,ballons,meteors,all of that before but have never encountered anything like this before. really wierd and scarry. i didn't tell noone yet because i don't think noone will believe me. how do you tell someone you just seen a triagular object hovering over a field next to you. thats why i am reporting this to this site. that way you know about this and this is in your guys expertise area.
