Triangular object spotted over Tampa 5/26/16 9:30 pm

Noticed a bright light at 9:30 pm EST. Traveling from S.W to N.E. over my house in Carrollwood area of Tampa. There were no clouds and the night sky was clear and stars were all visible. It appeared at first like a moving star.

I thought it might be a plane but noticed no blinking lights. It wasn't moving very fast and as it got closer (more directly over head) I noticed 3 straight illuminated lines that formed a triangle surrounding the bright star like point of light in the center of the object. The lines that formed the triangular border where white in color and the central single light was more yellowish white.

I tried to take some pictures with my cell phone, but could not get any in focus to show the shape of the object.

My wife came out and saw it as well.

It continued on a straight N.E heading and seemed to pick up speed as it traveled away from us. It made no sound the entire time.

Total time we observed it was 4-5 minutes.

We did not observe any other objects or any craft pursuing UFO.
