Fireball. Triangular craft, noiseless, hovering large.

This event occurred the day following the fireball in th urals in Russia. I was awakened by a bright light at about 3:30 am. I got up instantly and saw an orange yellow bright fireball which was bright enough to awake me and instantly go to my window. It moved in an north to south direction, tangentially at a low angle of descent to the east of the town. It was bright enough to light up the town, but lasted in total only five seconds in total. I do not recall any sort of tail. It disappeared suddenly without any noise or explosion. It appeared to my eye to be a meteor, moving at an extreme rate of speed. It was certainly not a balloon or Chinese lantern.

Parenthetically I saw a large triangular craft in the nearby Iao valley about two years ago, at about 3:00. It was noiselessly motionless above the highest local peaks of the west maui mountains. It had lights along its edges at the long axis. I watched for 15 minutes or so, then left. I have seen several identical objects in palm desert in the past, over the period of three to five years ago. I watched these for hours. Silent. Motionless at night always. Usually as I recall around the same time of night. I have inexplicably become used to waking up at 0:300 and feeling compelled to arise and direct my gaze toward Orion. This behavior began about six years ago. I have no explanation. I add only that I had the feeling, based on just a gut reaction, that these triangular craft are not alien.

Thank you.
