Triangular black object with red lights seen over Alameda

A very large, black triangular craft with red lights on its perimeter, was seen maneuvering west of my home at 13th Avenue and 20th street, in the direction of Alameda or the Bay. (Monitoring the weapons cache at the old Naval Air Station?) I estimate it was 1/2 mile above the ground and maybe 2 miles away. It had 3 sides, with red lights.

Last night was crystal clear, yet this object appeared blurry.

It made sharp and quick turns. My intuition leads me to believe "they" were looking for someone or something.

I continued to watch, covered in goose bumps, for approximately 2 minutes. Both of my dogs were frightened. The smaller dog wanted me to pick her up. My other dog wanted nothing more than to just go home. They have never shown fear to a vehicle, especially a vehicle in the sky.

It's ascent left me feeling it is not ours. As it took off skyward, it did so keeping the "hull" square to the ground, travelling virtually in a direct vertical line. Its color also changed to an orange color. This craft was completely silent.
