Triangle object with 4 white lights silently flys through the sky very low to the ground.

A few of us were standing in the back yard around a fire late at night. I turned from the fire to warm up my back side and just stared up at the cool night sky. The moon was bright and there were a few slow moving clouds, the stars were shining bright. I noticed what I thought was one small cloud moving faster then the others, that is what first caught my eye. Then I realize it was not a cloud but rather a dark triangular object moving silently through the clouds. The object flew in a straight line and I did notice 4 large lights underneath, the lights did not flash or blink and they had a strange color to them. The color was like an aluminum flashlight beam. I yelled at my wife and her brother to look but the triangular object was too hard to see, they looked further on and saw an airplane in the distance. I kept my eye on the object; it was low to the ground, triangular, silent, with 4 eerie white lights.
