Triangle hovering over me then moved across sky

I was laying on grassy hill at Good Shepherd hospital in Barrington with girlfriend. I looked up to see a formation of multicolored lights in a triangular shape – like a rack of pool balls, but each line of lights were of the same color. I couldn’t make out the physical shape. It seemed to be black in color against a clear black sky. It was probably 800 ft in the air. No sound. I looked at it for approximately 2 seconds and pointed to the object. It then moved across half the horizon in about 2 seconds. I know it was watching us. I know it departed because I noticed them/it. It had unbelievable speed and no ramp during acceleration. It was either stopped and hovering or moving at 1,000s of miles per hour…with no trail or noise. I’m left with the knowledge that these flying objects are out there and not only do they have unbelievable flying abilities (it’s not fair to call it flying) they have incredible observation abilities. From about 800 or so feet they c! ould tell that I was looking at them and in 1-2 seconds they noticed me looking at them and they moved their craft across the horizon. I didn’t speak of this for over 10 years. I’ve told this to a number of people in the past 10 or so years and have been met with mixed feedback. I’ve been fortunate to meet others who have legitimate sightings and now I feel like there’s a legitimate population of “have seen” and “haven’t seen”. I’m not sure it’s any better, but at least I can say that I’m a “have seen”.
