Triangle UFO sighting

When I was about 13 years old, I was riding in the passenger seat of my mother's car and looking out the window. It was night time, probably around 8pm, and I saw a triangular object hovering in the sky. I remember there being 3 red lights, one at each point of the triangle, and it may have had a light in the center but I cannot remember. It was hovering in the sky, barely moving, and it must have been relatively low because it appeared fairly large. Then about 8 seconds after I spotted the object, it shot off into the sky with a flash of light and disappeared. It made a sort of zig-zag maneuver, in the shape of an "S" or a "Z", as it flew away. It was moving so quickly that it was gone within a second and all I could see was a faint light trail. I have always been a skeptic so I immediately began scanning the area for any kind of tower or aircraft that could explain what I saw but there was nothing in the area. This sighting was over 10 years ago and I beli! eve it was around Christmas time but I can't remember the actual date. I am 25 years old and a member of the US Armed Forces. I consider myself a very rational person but I cannot explain what I saw.
