triangle pattern of lights seen over Kent Ohio

I am am member of the US Army, gunnery trained to identify many vehicles. I went to school for aerospace engineering. The object I saw does not match any craft that I am currently aware of. Its speed, direction of travel, and apparent flight height should preclude it being any traditional aircraft following my knowledge of regulations.

On 10/06/21 while traveling westbound on Ohio state rout 59 known GPS location 41°09'03.5"N 81°22'30.0"W I observed a flying object traveling approximately 60 miles an hour bearing 070 I would estimate its height at around 600 to 800 feet. The object had 3 distinct lights in and maintaining a near perfect triangular pattern during the entirety of its time in my sight. Blink pattern consisted of one light staying on and then the other two lights blinking, with the solid light alternating between two points of the triangle and the blink sustaining for roughly one half second every second and a half.

At first I believed it to just be a plane coming from the nearby airport, however, its flight height and light pattern were inconsistent with the craft I normally see in the area. Once I realized that this was an oddity, I quickly grabbed my phone and captured a video as the object traveled over my vehicle. I pulled my vehicle over at the same time, however the object had already disappeared over a tree line. I was not able to get a more steady picture or video. The video I am attaching, although only having the object in frame and in focus for a few seconds, clearly shows the light pattern, light color, and blinking pattern I have described above.
