Black triangular craft with green/red lights flying high over lake christmas night.

It was Christmas night, after 6 pm. I live by a small lake, trout lake, it's not an isolated area, it is actually situated beside some busy roads. I was sitting in my garage waiting for my car to warm up. In the distance, above the horizon/buildings, a very bright white light appeared, the bright white light seemed to be rising very very slowly, or maybe it was moving forward north, towards my area. This light looked like a really really big star, or a helicopter search light, or a car headlight in the sky. I assumed it was a plane or helicopter at first, then it was apparent that it was travelling north. as the object was above the small lake, i could now see the underside of the craft and I am positive that It was triangular in appearance, black/stealth in colour. the lights that i remember seeing are red/greens, there might have been blue. at this point, the craft had been travelling in a straight line, but after it had passed the lake and was almost straight above me, it veered left (east) and I am positive that a regular passenger plane would not act in this manner. I chased the object a few blocks and the triangular nature was evident still. the object was now hidden behind trees and i gave up the chase.
