Citing of a triangle shaped craft on the river.

I was backpacking way down in the Buffalo River basin with a friend, and we set up camp, cooked some food, and went to sleep. I woke up at about 11:00 to go the bathroom, and I witnessed a very shocking sight: a triangle shaped craft about 500 ft. up with lights at the corners and a bright light shining from the center. I estimated it to be about as large as a big jet airliner and the strange thing was it was completely silent. The light in the center seemed to be searching for something, and I screamed at it defiantly! It shined the light on me, then suddenly went dark and bolted into the sky at an extremely high rate of speed. I tried waking up my friend, but he didn't seem to believe me, and as I climbed back into my bag, the only comfort that I had was that at least I wasn't alone down in this valley, or we weren't alone in the universe? Needless to say I didn't sleep and it has bothered me ever since.
