Three lights skull/heart shape. flew low made loud noise.

My friend and I were camping outside in the backyard in my camping tent. We were talking and heard a very low (for an aircraft) sounding noise. Neither of us knew what it was so my friend (who is very much into aeronautics) couldn't resist looking at it. He saw it and grabbed me right away. We looked at it for about 15 seconds too scared to do anything until we came to our senses and ran inside yelling. My dad did not believe us. The U.F.O had rounded sides and looked like a skull/heart shape. Also my friend discribes it as an octagon with rounded edges that thins as it goes farther towards the end of the craft. It had three lights in a triangular form and the tip at of the triangle at the front of the ship was the brightest.
