Black Triangle over Palm Springs California

I was standing outside on a balcony of a condo that is very close to the Palm Springs airport. I was talking on the phone and was looking up into the night sky. I was describing the weather to a friend of mine when I noticed a triangular shaped object moving silently in the sky above me but not directly above me. It was fairly high up and was completely dark. The only way I was able to see it was because the city lights were reflecting off of it. If I hadn't looked up I never would have seen it. It was very dark in color like a slate gray except for circles at the tips of the triangles and perhaps circles in between and in the center. It happened so fast and I was so stunned by what I was seeing that I can't be sure of the number of circles. The circles looked to be a light gray. I had the impression that the circles were like bumps. It moved fairly slowly toward the East. Because it was so dark, I was unable to see it for very long and it soon disappeared into the eastern sky.
