Triangular UFO sighted in daylight Palm Desert CA on 11/21/11

UFO SIGHTING APPROXIMATELY 4:30 PM on November 21st 2011 It was still daylight outside and I was on my way to a Chinese restaurant to get something to eat with my wife. My wife was driving and said "Look at That". I looked up and saw what appeared to be a Triangular shaped craft near by and flying lower than usual. The shape was clearly defined and easy to see. It was triangular in shape, an isosceles triangle the size of a large airliner. It was a grey/blue colour. It was moving very slowly and close enough that I should of heard its engines, but did not hear anything. I doubt it was more than a mile away and less than a thousand feet up. The craft was making a starboard turn and when I saw the rear of the craft there were lights across the rear except near the corners. Each corner had a white light as did the Centre of the triangle. The lights on the bottom of the craft flickered and it changed the appearance quite a bit, although you could definitely see the triangular outline of the craft. The arrangement of the ligh! ts made it appear like an air liner. A few seconds later, the lights flickered again and this time it looked like the lights of several small planes. looking back on thinks, I really should have pulled over and taken things in better. My wife really wasn't all that excited about it and just kept heading to the restaurant. I guess that was because the only real difference between what we saw and an airliner was the triangular shape. It seemed to move differently though, almost turning like a boat.
