Triangular Aircraft Flyby

On November 19, 2002 at appromatly 4:30 am est. a coworker and myself stepped outside of our workplace to observe the Leonoids, As we were looking skyward we observed a triangular aircraft traveling in a north to south direction for a period of about 10 seconds. I estimate the craft to be 150 to 100 feet in length, traveling at a speed of 300 to 400 mph at an altitude of 1500 to 2000 feet, and emitted no sound. There were circular, dimly lit, pink-orange lights on each corner of the object. No other light was being emitted from the craft. The object was solid and cast a definitive triangular shape against the night sky, blocking out stars as it passed by. The object appeared to be matte-black in color and had no distinguishable detail other than some contrasting color that was situated in the center of its triangular shape. I will be sending a computer graphic that I made that represents what I saw.
