Black Triangle, Three White Lights, What was that?

At 9:30PM my wife and I were outside loading our car for a trip.

While waiting for her to load some items I noticed a couple of small planes flying overhead at normal altitude and then noticed a large white light moving steadily from east to west at a very low altitude, I would guess under a 1000 feet.

I asked my wife what is was and she could not tell either. What was alarming to us both was the fact that this thing made no noise and was large, as large as a 747.

It was very dark (new moon) but as the light got closer we both could see the visible outline of a triangle.

The "craft" rolled at an angle for us both to see one large white light in the front and three white lights in a row at the back. In the middle was one red light and one green light. None of the lights blinked.

We were able to view this for approximatey 45 seconds before the trees obstructed our view.

Neither of us beleive in aliens or any sort of thing like that, but what we saw was something we will never forget.
