A strange flying triangle shape object moving silently at extreme speed in the night sky

On starry night on august 15th around eighth o'clock in the evening My wife and my cousin sitting on the front lawn of our house. As lied down on the lawn and looking toward the roof of my house and watched the stars suddenly a cluster of three light stocked together to a shape like a rounded cornered triangle suddenly appeared in the dark sky moving at a very high rate of speed from the SE toward NW direction without any sound. We watched and wondered what it could have been......? I'm an airplane and space enthusiast and I can say with certainty what it was not !! It was not an airplane, it was not a satellite, it was not a commit, or not any kind of falling space junk. This is the first time in my life I can say with absolute certainty that I could not identify a flying object.......I would hate to say it was an alien craft because I don't believe in Intelligent extra terrestrial visits at all ! I was flying at a high altitude I would say as high as a! commercial airplane perhaps 30-40 thousand feet.silent completely for the duration we witnessed it. We were amazed of the speed and the strange shape....I would guesstimate the speed maybe twice or three times the speed of a satellite . So this is my story.
