Two far and near objects over Austin, TX. during the early morning of 10/05/2007

I just moved to Austin, TX (as of yesterday) and as of right now at 2:39am (10/05/07) I cannot shake this fear I have. I am genuinely scared and would appreciate someone to collaborate or explain what I saw.

This new house I am renting doesn't allow smoking indoors so I went outside my window and sat on the roof enjoying the smoke. I saw 2 things just minutes apart which I cannot explain nor forget.

It would have been around 1:00 or 1:05AM when I sat up and barely noticed something off in the sky. It looked like CGI or artists drawing of a comet. It had that leading umbrella like front that a comet does, but it had no tail. It looked like it had a wedge shape but you could only make out a front and the "back" wasn't visible. It moved from right to left from in the sky and was all but invisible against the sky. I only noticed it because it was moving and it seemed very far away and was very faint. As its view crossed across a streetlight it was obscured (washed out by the light). When it came back into view its wedge shape seemed a less of a point and much more rounded in front. It didn't do anything specific and very well could have been a comet, but I doubt it as it would have had to move across the sky line in 1-2 minutes. I took 2 pictures with my cell phone but nether show anything except that light across the street (it was that faint).

I was pretty freaked out and called my friend in VA and talked to her about it and while I was on the phone something else happened and now I am scared in my room. I was on the phone with this girl and getting anxious about what I saw and was about to walk through my window when I saw 3 lights VERY CLOSE. If anyone is familiar as to how low the planes fly over Arlington, VA (above the buildings and high rises) when flying into National Airport, it seemed to be about the highest height the planes take before they drop altitude for final approach. That is to say it was so close that I would have heard something.

It moved from right to left and was very very close. This defiantly had a triangular isosceles shape (from the 3 lights being in the corner). It was nearly straight above me and moved in a straight line or maybe it had a slight curve to its path. The lights did not illuminate a body of any sort but kept a perfect triangular shape. There was no blinking, NO NOISE and no fucking way I want to see it again. It was fast, but if it was as close as I think it was then it wouldn't have been as fast as the faint/far first object I saw.

My friend on the phone was panicing because I was panicing and I woke one of my new roommates but he didn't want anything to do with it. At least he saw the fear I had.

If anyone has any idea what it was or can collaborate what was in the sky please please post it.

BTW, I have been in Austin less then 24 hours and I am almost willing to pack the car and move back to DC... deposit be damned. I won't be sleeping tonight until my roommates wake up, it isn't as though I'm a coward, far from it. I just can't explain what it is. If I could explain it or understand it or even deny it I'd probably feel a lot better right now.
