Sighting Details

I was driving on Route 222-N to attend a meeting in Allentown. I am a stargazer, so I was enjoying the clear sky and the full moon was very bright. A lot of the constellations and planets (Jupiter) were very easily noticeable tonight as it is extremely clear, and the moon is casting light everywhere. As I was at a red light near the Trexlertown Shopping Plaza, I noticed a glowing triangle shape going across the sky right below the moon in a W->E direction. What made me notice this is because I have never seen a triangular shaped object like this before. I actually stopped my car and pulled over because I could not keep my eyes on the road and didnt want to get in an accident. I watched it as it traveled, trying to rule out airplanes or helicopters which were seen in my neighborhood and on the drive there. It was nothing I have ever seen before. My husband and I sit out on our porch every night and watch the sky when the weather allows us. This was a large triangular shaped object. It almost looked like the glowing yellow lights on it were spaced evenly throughout the triangle edge. I lost sight of the object because it dissipated and disappeared into the East. I have not stopped thinking about it since I witnessed it at approx. 6:36pm and it is now 9:43pm. Again, I have never seen an object like this is my life. I wish I could have taken a picture but I did not have enough time and I only had my cell phone camera, which doesnt work well with distances.
