Black Triangle glides over the night sky

A few nights ago my girlfriend and I were driving home from a local store when I happened to look out the side window and noticed a large-sized bright yellow Orb moving fast over the distant highways about 4 or 5 miles away. This was about 7:30 PM. The Orb had been following our vehicle in what appeared to be a straight course to the far left of me but also moving towards us. I had a strange feeling it was watching us and following us back home.

As we turned some corners and finally getting home I didn't see the light anymore so I thought it was probably just a plane with bright lights, but I decided to go outside and look up at the sky anyway because I had a feeling that it wasn't a plane.

At about 8:00 PM I saw that the Orb had reached the starlit sky where I was standing. It must have followed our vehicle all the way back. What happened during the next three hours are things I don't think can ever be explained. It moved very slow, without any sound at all. Imagine a hang-glider gliding over the sky without a sound, all was quiet. By this time however, the object had drastically dimmed to an eery dark glow and I saw what looked like a perfect black triangle. I could make out the entire outline as if the lights of the moon and stars were reflecting off of it.

The Triangle was very detailed. In fact it looked similar to that recent Triangle UFO posted on this website from Auston, TX. But there were some big differences with the one I saw. There was a red front light on the tip of the Triangle, and two red stationary lights on the two back tips. None of the lights moved or changed. The lights were dim, like those laser-pen lights, and lit up the image of the Triangle. There were no planes around when this was happening.

My backyard was small, and darkened, it was situated in an apartment complex. I stayed there to watch as I didn't want to go out into the open sidewalk. The movement was very strange, it would drift further away, turn around and then go the other way, as if it was rotating in a long, slow circular pattern. It went on like this for about two hours. Sometimes it would fade off in one direction only to appear at another place in the sky.

At one point the Triangle's red tip shot out a faded yellow light beam through the sky. The beam had no movement and reached a far distance. Then the beam would vanish. I decided to walk around the apartments a bit and it seemed like the object would turn its course and follow my direction.

The last hour, the third hour around 11:00 PM, it was in the middle of the sky and did the strangest thing, it shot out a small white orb from the side. The orb slowly went a ways then changing its course flew back inside the Triangle. I had no idea what it was doing but that is what happened! The orb looked like one of the stars but it had no sparkling effect like a star does. Eventually the Triangle drifted off through the sky I don't know where it went from there, but I could no longer see it. Whatever that thing was, I know for sure that it was no plane...
