Triangular craft witnessed in Adelaide, Australia

I'm an 18-year-old female from Adelaide, Australia.

Last night (Friday 21st July 2006 at approx 2.20 am) I witnessed what I believe was a UFO. So far as I know, I was the sole witness. The weather conditions at the time of sighting were like any crisp winter night. The moon was waning (although it was perhaps oddly well lit outside) there was minimal cloud clover and the air was still, no wind or rain. I was brushing my hair before going to sleep, when I heard something like the noise of an approaching aircraft. Only, it didn't sound like a jet engine - it was of a indescribable, strange pitch and more thunderous... strange enough to give me the heebie jeebies. Given that there's a flight curfew in Adelaide between 11 PM - 5 AM, and the sound it made was so odd, I went to look out the window in time to see it almost right overhead. It wasn't very high up, and I could see it was shaped like a backwards triangle with rounded corners.

There were two steady clear, blue-white lights with a pulsating red tail light on the underbelly of the craft, but there was enough light outside for me to make out the shape of whatever it was. There was no nose - it was literally a triangle. It was bizarre enough for me to get a chill down my spine and I was contemplating reaching for my phone to take a photo, when it just disappeared! I could hear it but I couldn't see it, even though my line of sight in the direction it was going was unblocked. I should've been able to see it with no problem. I can only assume it went above a cloud - but like I said, it wasn't at a high altitude, and it wasn't cloudy last night. I am not located near any airports or air force bases. Besides, it was well past the aforementioned curfew. In addition, I noticed afterwards that the air seemed to be charged with static.
