Shape: Triangle
Duration:1 minute
3bright lights trianglular shape like an airplane, but hovering

We were watching heat lighting and turned onto a road when my husband noticed what appeared to be a very low flying aircraft at a highspeed heading toward us. Knowing there was no airport around we watched it fearing it was going to crash when it suddenly came to a complete stop and appeared to be hovering. It had 3 bright nonflashing lights in the shape of a triangle and there was no noise. We watched the craft while driving due to no place to pull over. We stopped at a light and we really don't know what happened, it either moved quickly or turned off the lights. A few moments later about 5 miles down the road in Cecil County, MD we noticed a large military cargo plane doing about a 15 mile radius circle around the two counties flying low as if it were searching for something.
