Unkonwn object in the night sky emitting 4 dim lit lights in a triangular form

My boyfriend and I went to the movies at 7pm on August 25, 2008. When the show was over we walked back to the truck. As I was throwing bits of ice on him something in the sky caught my eye, and at first I thought it was a shooting star so I glanced away for a second and when I looked back up I noticed that there were 4 dim lit lights on the underneath on what looked like a triangular craft. And the craft, which was completely black, had a fine silver line that looked to be the far edge of the wing.

So I thought to myself that this would be some sort of an airplane but I noticed that there was no sound and no flashing blue/red lights. It was completely silent. My dad also asked about the space station or it being a satellite or something. No, it wasn’t because I noticed that as it passed by it covered up the stars as it was moving. It didn’t seem to be that high like a plan either, I mean, it wasn’t touching the tops of trees or anything.

So about a few seconds when I realized what I may be seeing I slapped my boyfriend on the shoulder and pointed to the sky. He saw the last 3 or 4 seconds of it but then as it got farther away it was gone.
