UFO sighting on night of meteor showers

This happens to be the night of the meteor showers. The report showed that 3-4 AM would be the time of the most significant shower sights. We had been watching since 2 AM and consistently witnessed showers. Right after the clock hit three we we witnessed two more showers, and out of nowhere we noticed what seemed like a star beginning to slowly move through the sky. We saw a faint blinking red light aside it at first and assumed it was a distant plane. But soon we had a change of mind as the object which was close to or as distant as the stars flew from one end of the sky to the other in less than forty-five seconds. We also noticed as it descended from our view that it had a diamond shape and there were acually 3 red lights flashing from one side to the front. I had thought that UFO's were just made up crap by crazy people. Not anymore.
