Triangular shaped object seen over Socorro New Mexico

Some friends and I were ordering some food at the drive through window of the local fast food restaurant. We were staying at a motel next door and had decided to just walk up to the window instead of going inside. It was already pretty late and we didn’t think they would mind.

I placed my order and walked off to watch the cars go by as my friends placed their orders. I don’t know what made me look up; maybe it was a sense of motion or movement that caught my eye. I looked up and I saw a dark triangle shaped object with three lighter shaded circles at each of the corners. The circles were not really lighter in color but maybe not as black. The object was just within the glow of the street lights being reflected off the street but not quite low enough to be fully illuminated. For some reason it seemed darker than the night sky above it.

It moved at a very slow, deliberate pace as if not in any real hurry. It seemed like it was observing maybe. There was no sound either. It seemed to float or glide without any sound of any kind of propulsion.

Whatever it was doing, it never increased its speed and slowly made its way down the street and disappeared into the dark.
