A triangular object with white and blue lights flying toward a airport then abruptly away

I live near a small municipal airport and I’m used to seeing low flying planes and have learned pretty much how to figure out the model of airplane. But at around 1930 on tuesday night I pulled up to an intersection and witnessed a what appeared to be a plane flying very low, by the way it was a rainy night with very low cloud cover, it was a triangular shaped object with a white light on the back end and a dim greenish blue light in the middle. When I saw it I figured that it was a plane on approach but as I watched it seemed flying too fast for a safe landing.

When I saw the green light I thought it was a landing light and I waited for a blinking strobe which is a requirement for all airplanes but witnessed none. I brought it to the attention of my grandmother in the passenger seat and as the time she looked up and saw it accelerated hard right and went behind a house. I stepped on the pedal to get to the top of a hill and see it again but it was gone.

I am very used to seeing low flying planes and helis but this was unlike I have ever seen.
