Triangular shaped craft on Nov. 8, 2017

I had just arrived home from work with my family and I took my infant son into the driveway to look up at the stars. I saw five lights arranged into a triangular formation moving very slowly above me and my son. There was no sound at all. It lasted only about 3-5 seconds, and then it accelerated so fast that the lights formed lines and then it all disappeared. My son was only one year old at the time, and so I can't count him a witness. I am over 40 and this was the first time I have ever seen anything like this in my life. I will never forget it. I remember that I was not able to see stars through what appeared to be the middle of the craft, but the craft itself was invisible. It was very dark outside, and the sky was crystal clear.

After a year of reflection, I assume it was a classified govt. craft, but I'll probably never know.
