Metallic Triangular object hovers over Valdese

I was returning from Hickory, NC with dinner for my mom & myself from Olive Garden - it was dusk. I turned from the main road into our driveway and I saw an object about 100 feet behind the house, hovering over top of the woods behind the house. I quickly parked the car & ran inside and said to my mom, "get out here now". By the time we both were outside, the object was hovering right over the driveway - maybe 20 feet above the telephone pole, which is beside the driveway. The object was triangular in shape, was larger than a car and was metallic. It made no noise, and glided through the air unlike any other aircraft I am familiar with. The object had about 4 or 5 lights on it - multicolored. After we watched it for about a minute, it continued to glide across the sky until it disappeared in the distance. The object moved from North (over the woods) to the South near High Peak Mountain.
