A triangular object that didnt make a sound seen at a low level around El Paso

I was coming from my med school in Juarez, Mexico and entering one of the main intersections of El Paso (where I live). The street i was on was executive boulevard when i first saw a strange object. In El Paso there are big mountains around the area. I was at a stop light and looked up to the mountain area and thought i was wondering why the radio tower i saw looked slightly big. Now remember it was dark around this time. Then i realized that it wasnt the radio tower that i usually see up on the mountain. It seemed like a triangular object floating. Ive had a great interest in UFO's for the past few years but i always knew that if i was ever to report an UFO to anyone that i wanted to make it under the most objective standards. I realized that it couldnt have been a helicopter since there wasnt a sound at all and the outlining shape seemed to be triangular. I do live around a military base called fort bliss and they sometimes fly helicopters but you will always hear them. There was no way it could have been a plane since the flight pattern taken by this object seemed to be straight for a little bit, seemed to have stayed a little stationary and then sort of zig-zagged. Iam not an expert on planes or helicopters but i usually see these things fly a straight path. I thought that this object could have been a blimp but it seemed too low for a blimp. I always have this notion that blimps are flown during day time. Anaways the lights emanating from this object werent too bright. I dont remember the number of lights but they were definiteley blinking. I had another eyewitness who was in a car next to my car. I rolled down my window to ask him if he saw what i saw. He was perplexed. He said he couldnt believe what he saw and he said he didnt know what it was. I wish i could have stopped to him and maybe talked to him for a little while aobut this experience but there was too much traffic. Anaways i tried to chase this object and when i did i could see it in the horizon for a few more minutes ! and then i just couldnt catch up to it anymore since i would have to take a dirt road to see where this object was going.
