Triangular craft with bright white lights across the back and flashing red light near front tip

My daughter and I were driving on Harrodsburg Road heading east toward Lexington passing the Palomar Center whan my daughter noticed lights in the sky behind Palomar. I looked up and saw a string of white lights with 3 bright ones with several dimmer ones in between. There was a red light flashing away from the white lights. The craft seemed stationary , however I could not make out the shape as I was driving. I pulled up to a red traffic light about 15 to 20 seconds later and got out of the car and it was gone. My daughter got a better look at it than I did and describes it as a triangular craft with the white lights along the back and the red light toward the front tip. It made no noise. We were less than 1/2 mile from the craft and it appeared to be only 300 to 500 feet high. Judging from the spacing of the lights I saw I would say it was about 250 to 300 feet across the back. It was pointed East by Northeast. It was dark out and the craft was dark in color except for the lights.
