Shape: Triangle
Duration: 15 mins
Characteristics: There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
While driving my 8 y/o daughter spotted an unusual craft and pointed it out to me and my girlfriend. This was a triangular shaped craft approx 500-1000 feet off of the ground traveling from the west to the east at a slow rate of speed. Craft was not large. perhaps the size of average airliner. Visibility was clear and there were numerous other aircraft flying at what would have appeared to be higher altitudes. The car was running so unable to determine if this was a silent craft. Craft had a row of 4 lights on what would appear to have been the aft end, with 2 in the center and 1 on the leading edge. There were no navigational lights visible. The "aft" row of lights were somewhat dim on what would be assumed to be the port side. I have witnessed numerous phenomenon in the night sky from all sorts of atmospheric condiions including aurora, this was not any sort of aircraft I have ever seen before and I had a perfectly clear view of this craft
