Unbelievable star that turns into a UFO.

The Craft that I saw was spotted by me at around 10:30pm. I was on my back deck star gazing and enjoying some beverages. When I looked in the sky to what appeared to look like a star but it was shimmering orange. I t stayed stationary for at least a minute. I took my eyes off it and just figured it was a star. Then I decided to check and see if it was still there. When I looked it accelerated and started breaking apart. It looked like it had a spot light in the front as it was breaking apart. It flew right above my head in the night sky. As it flew above my head it formed a triangle shape and had 3 red lights and a black mass in the middle. It continued threw the sky until I could no longer see it.

I strongly believe what I saw was not from this planet. I do not know the exact trajectory or elevation. If I had to guess I saw it rise in the West and then fly above me and disappear in the East. Elevation I would say when it was at its highest point maybe a couple thousand feet but it was not flying extremely high at all. It did accelerate quickly and then stop on a dime and break out into the triangle with red lights then it cruised slowly away.

I thank you for your time what I saw was incredible I have also seen 4 other UFO's through out my life time. It is an incredible adrenaline rush to see them. I have had witnesses before but this time I was by myself.
