triangular craft with three dim lights moving swiftly and silently across night sky

Last night I took a walk to the cliffs (Monterey Bay) and I looked up at the sky quite a bit; the crescent moon and stars were beautiful. I was almost to my front door when I looked up one last time to appreciate the night sky. My eyes were instantly drawn to movement- the movement of a triangular craft! It was above my house and flew eastward until trees and homes blocked my view. It moved quickly and silently across the sky. Its color was a dark grey, only a few shades away from the color of the sky. It had three lights, each one close to a point of the triangle. The lights were not typical white lights, like that of an airplane. They were dimmer, circular, and wider in circumference than the usual aircraft lights. They did not have a color. It was hard to judge how high it was flying, or how big it was. It was close enough that I could clearly see that it was a triangle with three lights. My thoughts while watching it were, "Wow, I'm actually! seeing a UFO! And it's a triangle, just like ones I've heard about. And it IS silent. Wooooow." Then it was gone.

I walked in the door in a state of shock and told my husband and son what I saw. My son thinks it's military. I don't know. I suppose they could have some super-stealthy technology that we don't know about. I don't know what it was, but it was certainly NOT an airplane, a mirage, weather phenomenon, or any of the normal things one sees in the sky.

I have never, ever seen anything like this before. Not even close! I am a stay-at-home mom in my 30's, very honest, Christian, and I am telling you, and anyone who'll listen, I saw a triangle UFO. Something strange is out there!
