Translucent UFO Triangle over Texas/Oaklahoma

Location: Lake Texoma, Texas
Time: 11:30pm
Direction of travel: West to East

A clear and moonless night. Sitting on the front of a boat underway, looking at the stars. Four adult friends, all witness this event. While looking at the big dipper, we noticed a triangle shape outlined by three large soft glowing lights one on each corner.

The UFO looked very large, and moved slowly with no noise.

There were no other lights visible from the object.

The odd thing is that we could see through the object. It looked translucent and we could see stars passing behind it as it moved across the sky.
