Pompano/Ft .Lauderdale Beach Triangle craft disappears!

While on Pompano beach we watched a black triangle shaped object moving at high altitude,First thought it was a large military craft but the closer it came it was apparent that it was huge in size and dwarfed commercial liners flying into Lauderdale/miami of which I might add had been regular inbounds but after this there were none for at least a hour and we were in the flight path area.Back to the craft,we could see the com trail over the Atlantic to out of oursight by eye or to the horizon,comtrail was huge circles, the craft approaching land went into a partial cloud cover but you could see through the cloud and no other clouds were in the area at the time.We watched to see it come out,it didnt it disappeared we waited and looked around in other directions, nothing.Comtrail stopped short of land and the cragt was gone just gone.The comtrail stayed for 30 to 45 min.I dont know what this was, none of us did we didnt have any cameras or video but more than just us saw it as this is mothers day weekend and many were there early like us.No alcohol or anything like that this was a real sighting of something capable of more than what we have and huge,to give some idea of the size I would say 10-15 commercial jets set side by side would not have covered it,altitude has to be a guess here,commercial jets landing we were looking at it from the beach Im going to say 35000ft.What was it,dont know,where did it go,vanished.This is true Id like some kind of explanation what we saw,I dont want to see it again though.No Sound
