Triangle shaped object witnessed in Alberta near Calgary

At approximately midnight we were sitting in our yard relaxing before bed as I had had a late night. We were amazed at the number of satellites & shooting stars evident in the clear night sky and observed for a period of time. Because we were focusing on the sky above our property facing south we (my wife and I) noticed a large peculiar triangular shaped object slowly moving southward towards Calgary fly right overtop of us. What I initially thought was why are we not hearing any sound from such a large low flying object.As mentioned and better appreciated from my sketch of the object it was very large and if I could relate it to something it would be large enough to fill a football stadium.

There were 5 disctint lights within the triangle and were very dimly lit with a light low enough that if we were not looking at the exact right spot we would not have even noticed it even based on it's size. It blended very well with the clear and dark night sky so well that if it had just been myself witnessing it I would have written it off as my eyes playing with me but thankfully my wife witnessed it as well. We know it is strange and even tried to see if it blocked out stars above it to confirm an object and sure enough we could not see the stars directly above it. Simply it sent chills thru both of us.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness via telephone, and he sounded quite sober-minded and credible to us. PD))
