Trangular shaped solid white lights with solid amber light in middle. Columbia, MO

Columbia, MO On the night of July 18, 2007 I observed an object in the sky. The only thing I could see against the sky were 3 solid white lights in a perfect equilateral triangle with a solid orange/amber light in the middle. I could see no outline of an aircraft, only the lights.

The sound was lower than any other aircraft I've seen flying overhead. It also seemed to be flying both slower and lower than other any other aircraft I've seen at night, although it was hard to tell against the night sky and since I couldn't see any outline of the craft.

It traveled in approximately a nw - se direction.

I can't say the exact time it was since it was several weeks ago but can approximate somewhere between 2200 and 0000 at night.

I told my parents the next day about it so they can collaborate the story.

I've been trying to find aircraft light configurations since then to figure out what it was but all that comes up are UFO sites, and I've never seen an aircraft without a blinking light on it. These were all solid and in a perfect equilateral triangle.

We do live in the same state as the Stealth Bomber is housed, although several hundred miles away and I don't know if the light pattern matches the bomber, although that would explain the lower sound it made.
