Triangle UFO over San Joes, CA 12/2010

I was on my 2nd floor patio having a cigarette looking at the stars. All of a sudden I heard what sounded like a low, deep hum of what I thought was a cessna sitting on a runway just running the engine. I kept watching to the north where it was coming from. After about 10-15 seconds, two bright white lights appeared over the top of the next building, and heading towards over my building heading south. It appeared to be at about 500 feet above. I watched it was my jaw dropped. I was not scared of it, and in fact felt really comfortable, and even peace. As it slowly, but continuously floated overhead, I noticed that it was a triangle! The front was like two "headlights". They were in the front of it, not below it. And as it was right above me, I noticed the back of the craft (triangle) had a light at that end also. There were no lights underneath it. The lights were reflecting the undercarriage where I noticed that it appeared to be a whitish-grey color. I noticed some detail on it's belly like what looked like a long pipe running up one of the sides of the belly. It didn't stop, or use any kind of spot lights. It just kept moving south until it moved completly over my building, and out of my sight.

The total amount of time that passed from start to finish was about two minutes. I looked at the clock as soon as I couldn't see it anymore, and it said 11:00pm California time. After that, I couldn't get to sleep so I just laid in bed.

At about 12:15am, I heard that same exact sound again, and just laid there. I didn't know whether to get up and go look, or stay in bed where it was warm... I stayed in bed and now regret it. I heard it for 15 minutes before it slowly got quieter, then complete silence. I wish I had not made the decision to stay in bed. What if this really was a UFO? That was a one-in-a-million chance.

Nearby, there is Mountain View, CA where there used to be a NASA base. However, they do not test anything there. Up in the nearby Santa Cruz mountains, there is a secret military base where only God knows what goes on. There was nothing in the sky before the sighting, and nothing after.

I am wondering if anybody else saw this? It was realatively early as there was still alot of cars driving on the streets, etc.
