Single bright light giving way to strange flickering lights, moving very slowly

Finally I notice someone else (Gloucester, VA 5/4/11 @ 22:10) reporting what I have been seeing ever since I moved to Central Virginia. I've been scouring the internet but, to my dismay I have not found anyone else who has reported seeing these things. I see them all the time. The other night I saw one driving north on route 29 near Charlottesville. It appears at first to be a star shining quite brightly but not moving very much if at all. Then, getting closer to it, you begin to make out a red light and a blue light, one on each end, and the bright white light in the center. They fly very slowly, at a few hundred feet in the air, and the lights seem to flicker in a random pattern.

Now, after you've finished laughing and saying "Um, yeah, they're called airplanes....," last winter one flew directly over my house and didn't make a sound. It was NOT an airplane. It was first flying in one direction, sort of in the direction of my house but not completely, and when it turned towards my house fully the bright light appeared to be a spotlight--I could see the light reflecting off of the ground--it appeared as if whoever was flying it was looking for something. As it flew over my house, maybe five hundred feet above, I could see it was triangular with that same configuration of lights that seem to flicker in a random pattern and again it was completely silent. It really freaked me out.
