On Halloween Night 2005, 3 Lights in shape of a triangle moving over Scottsdale, AZ.

Well walking up Granite Reef, about 1/4 mile north of Indian School, with my 2 youngest daughters I saw what I thought was 3 stars in the shape of a triangle far off in the western sky. Something about them caught my attention, and then I realized it was that they were moving towards us, all at once, together, as one it seemed. I watched them for a few mins until I was sure of what I was seeing, then I told my daughters to look up and they saw them/it too. They slowly came almost directly over our heads, and as they got near to us they started to bank and turn towards the south. I didn't realize it at first but as they got closer to us they were also descending. I could see any edge or shape to this craft, but it was blocking out the view of the sky and stars behind it as it moved... As it straightened out towards the south after making the turn, it wobbled once or twice and then shot off to the south 3 to 5 miles (estimate), also elevating as it moved, and then just stopped. It covered this distance in the blink of an eye, but it also seemed like maybe who ever or what ever was controlling this thing, wasn't having the results they wanted. The Movement was somewhat erratic and unstable. Changing elevation and direction and stopping and going, and that wobble before it moved quickly to the south, just didn't seem as controlled as something that could move that fast and that quite should be. I don't know what it was, but I have never seen a plane or helicopter that could move like that and not make a sound.
