Small, triangular-shaped craft flying westerly, late Sunday evening of Memorial Day Weekend 2016

I observed a small, triangular-shaped craft in the sky above the City of Fallon, NV, on late Sunday evening of Memorial Day Weekend 2016. Upon exiting my vehicle in front of my apartment, I looked up at the sky to admire the stars as it was a fairly clear night. Fallon has a fair amount of light pollution making it difficult to see a lot of stars. I looked at a patch of clouds in the eastern sky and observed a pale glow reflecting off of the clouds and some type of aircraft coming through the patch, heading toward the west. It was flying in a straight path at a relatively fast pace, but not unlike a jet airplane flying at a low altitude. It appeared to be small and triangular, blackish in color, with a pale light on each point. But its size is relative to its altitude so I am not completely sure how small or large it was. It may have been flying at 5-10,000 feet relative to the eastern patch of clouds. I noticed how it covered the stars as it passed ! above, which made it easy to track its flight path in the sky. I only observed the craft for approximately two minutes or less and it was out of my line of sight quickly. I was standing 20 feet from my one-story apartment door which impaired my sight to the west. I doubt I would have observed much even if I went to my backyard as there are trees and other houses on the other side of the street that would have also impaired my sight. I entered my apartment shortly after that and did not observe anything else.
