Clearly visible "backwards" flying black triangle moves over Connecticut highway

I was travelling west on Rt. 2 in Connecticut roughly between exits 21 and 22, at approximately 8:30 pm when I observed the front of a large craft flying perpendicular to my car in a southern direction. From what I could see of the front of the craft at that moment, it was equal in width to a large 747 jet, and had two large solid white lights on each end, and a small blinking redish light somwehere else on the object. It was fairly low to the ground, and I watched through my passenger windows as it flew over my car and temporarily out of my sight, so I turned out my driver's window, looking back and forth to the road, to wait for the object to re-appear, but not seeing it for approximately 20 seconds. I looked forward and saw the object was now in clear view, but substantially ahead of me on the highway still traveling south. At this point I could see that the object was a solid black triangle against the dark bluish night sky, all sides the same length. The rear was a point, and the front was a flat side. The small blinking redish/pink light was on the tail and the large white lights were on the face of the two front tips of the triangle. It continued moving south away from the highway until out of sight. There was another large white light far away in that southern direction as well, though I saw no detail of it. If it was an airplane though it certainly saw this object as it was moving in it's general direction. I could clearly see though with no doubt in my mind that this was indeed a solid "backwards" flying equilateral triangle with no wings, engines or windows. I feel that some form of authorities in the areas that this object passed over should be contacted to see if others saw it as well.
