3 lighted triangular craft (Very silent)

First of all let me say that I am a harsh skeptic of aliens and all that stuff. This experience changed all that.

I live in downtown vancouver in a highrise on the 16th floor. I was just about to tune on to the simpsons(that's how I know the exact time) when i saw this flying object over the the buildings in front of us. At first I thought that it was just the light of one of the cranes on the construction areas. I knew it could'nt be a plane because first of all planes arent supposed to be that close to the city and after watching the planes that go around here everyday I ve almost memorized their paths. second of all the lights in this craft werent flickering or blinking or anything they were just constantly beaming a hazy sort of wierd whitish/yellowish light. I kept looking at it for a while and thought what the hell could that be could it be a blimp? At first I didn't see the 3 lights on the corners of this triangular craft until it very very slowly and I stress SILENTLY without the smallest sound just hovered towards my building. I mean anything made by man that flys only 500 meters away has to make a sound. by now I had called my brother cause I thought my eyes were fooling me. As the craft got closer we realized that it was no plane but some sort of triangular craft because it passed exactly a couple stories over my building and we were looking at the bottom of the craft and saw it's structure and there was a red light in the middle of it (the sterotypical red light, I know) I was just astonished and ran for my camera I kep searching for the damn thing in my messy house and eventually found it and took one lousy picture which I have no idea on how it will turn out. My brother is my witness and all those who know me know how much of a skeptic and disbeliever I am.

I then ran downstairs yelling that there's a UFO outside and nobody believed me i ran and saw the craft. suddenly instead of going on it's horizontal path it went vertically straght to the skies and turned into a star and stayed their for a while and then left. Some other people saw this downstairs and they didn't care they said it's no big deal probably some governmental plane. But what would a governmental plane be doing in downtown vancouver?
