Triangular UFO with following craft - Lake Havasu, AZ

I don't remember if it was 1997 or 1998, but at the time I lived in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. My grandpa was in our backyard with the dog taking her to the bathroom before he went to bed. I was in my room watching TV and my mom was doing the same in her room. My grandpa ran in the house and yelled for my mom and I to get outside. When we got out there there was a craft that looked exactly like the drawing Kris made. The three of us stood there and stared at the craft for probably close to five minutes as it went over head.

The craft itself was triangular with a white light at each corner with a red light in the center, we couldn't see any details besides the light, it just looked like this pitch black void in the sky. The red light was, I would guess to be about twenty to thirty feet wide, and the white lights looks more like they were running lights of an airplane. At the time, we guessed it was 200-300 feet per side. The craft was moving so slow that we couldn't understand how it could stay in the air, and it was no more than a a hundred to a hundred and fifty feet off the ground. As the craft went over, we heard this very faint droning, the only thing I can really compare it to was like the hum of a turbine in a dam. A ways behind the large craft was three white lights that were in a triangular pattern, we couldn't tell if it was one craft or three, but it was completely silent and looked like it kept a steady distance behind the big craft. I would venture to guess it was about a tenth of the main craft, if that.

The crafts traveled from east/north east and moved west/south west over the city of Lake Havasu towards California. We all went inside sufficiently weirded out by what we saw.

A few minutes later I got a call from one of my friends who asked if I saw the thing in the sky. He lived about about two miles north east of where I did and was out with his dog. My aunt and uncle were on their patio that night on the north west side of town and they saw it. I can't remember dates, but, my aunt told me they've seen the same craft, but without the three lights following it) on several other occasions. In talking to some friends of theirs, they also saw the craft the night we all did, and one other time. I've got a friend online that I've known since 1997, he at the time lived in Ohio, he said that he saw this same craft as well several times.
