Triangle sighting over Abilene, Texas

At 2200 hrs I witnessed a triangular object flying overhead in the night sky at a controlled rate of speed. The first view of the craft was a triangle with 1 ea. leading light, and 2 ea. trailing lights. Although it was dark I was unable to see through the center area of the lights as if it had a body connecting the lights together. While it was overhead I was able the lights looked as though there was heat radiating from around them. As the craft continued following the course it was on it seemed to have change of its structure was positioned. Quickly the forward light shot upward as the two trailing lights seemed to expand their distance between one another. After the forward light shot upward it began to drop back down. From the position I was in at this point I was unable to tell if dropped back down to the forward position or if it was now in the trailing position. The sighting lasted roughly 8 seconds and was not moving in style of aircraft I h! ave seen. I did not see any indicating lights from any aircraft in the local area around the time of the sighting, and the local air base was not conducting any flying missions.
