Very loud triangle craft with lights that don't blink

I was home watching TV alone when I heard what I thought was a big helicopter coming up the valley. The noise became so loud that it shook the windows, so I got up to see expecting to see a sky crane or a couple of big chinook choppers because it was way too much noise to be just one. I scanned the sky and identified the source of the sound. The object appeared stationary with nothing else around it. I noticed also it appeared to be slowly rotating and the sound was changing. I decided to grab my camera and after many attempts got 1 decent photo. The sound started to change and I would say sounded like a pulsing rocket engine. I called my friend who lives north of me and asked him to go outside to see if he could hear it. He could. The craft turned and drifted slowly to the North about 20 miles an hour. I told my friend it was coming his way but he could not see it. It slowly turned to the west and drifted over the bay. After the craft went out of site a single fighter jet came over the house in a broad turn on a similar course, but with a wide berth like it was flying in a much larger circle. About a minute later 2 more fighters flew similar course.

I would say the craft was less then a mile away and approximately 3500 feet up and the size was comparable to a B2 bomber.

It moved with the point to the rear as it went buy but I think it was slowly rotating.
