Did anyone see the Triangle with lights in the sky in Bemidji, March 1, 2011 at 7:55?

I was traveling from Hwy 2 into bemidji, North onto Paul Bunyan Drive. One mile before the Northwest Tech college, I spotted a bright light in the sky to the left. It appeared to be a street light, but as I came closer, I thought maybe its on top of a water tower. Quickly, I remebered there is no water tower at this end of the city. I was talking on my cell phone at the time. As I got closer I could see, it was a triangle shape with three bright lights. It looked suspended in the sky. I was telling the person I was talking to on the phone the description. I opened my window because I thought maybe this is a new Helicopter of sorts. However, I didn't hear any noise that accompanies a helicopter. I was close enough to hear any noise. I could see it, and it was not a Helicopter. I remembered I had a camera in my purse. I was reaching for it and I pulled over to the shoulder of the road, which was not a good idea because someone could have crashed into me. As I reached for the camera, the lights changed to a dim yellow and turned directions slowly south.

I can't believe I'm the only one that saw this thing. I wonder if people even notice the sky at night?
