"Black Triangle" UFO with 3 White Lights on Each Point Seen in Beaumont, TX

I was waiting in my car to pick up a friend in a parking lot of an apartment complex located off Hwy 69 near the I-10 junction in Beaumont, Texas. It was a clear night and I was enjoying the cool weather and had both windows and my sunroof open. I was with someone else, but they had just exited the car for a moment.

I was just looking around, not paying much attention to anything, when what I thought was a low-flying aircraft caught my eye through the open sunroof. I looked up, and saw what looked like a low-flying equilateral black triangle with bright white lights on each point traveling along at a moderately fast pace directly above me. It wasn't going too fast for me to be able to follow it, but at the same time, it was gliding very smoothly and much too quickly for the altitude it looked like it was at.

As soon as I saw it, I got chills. I knew it was not normal.

I followed its path, which was an estimated northeast to southwest direction until it seemed to either fade away or just go too far away for me to see it (although that did not seem possible because of the clearness of the night). It made absolutely no noise that was audible to me.

I almost told my friend when they came back, because I was pretty shaken up, but I thought better of it. I came home, did some internet research, and was amazed to find out about the "Black Triangle" phenomenon. I had no prior knowledge of this.

I must add that I was completely sober and relaxed, and UFOs were the last thing on my mind at that time. I believe what I saw was 100% real. It's definately made a believer out of me.

I'd like to know if anyone else from my area has seen similar things.
