"It stayed completely still for a bit, and then it started to rise back up in the sky toward the east. When it moved it had a brilliant tail of light that followed it. It had a very bright light on its tip . The two base corners had dimmer lights, one of which seemed to be turned off. It made no noise, and was fairly close so I should have heard something if it was an aircraft."

Full Description & Details:
Myself and three others were walking home from a park behind an abandoned store. I was walking and talking to this guy beside me, and we were joking around. My friend was walking pretty far a head of us with her boyfriend.
Her boyfriend had mentioned just a moment before about seeing a light, and then dismissed it to walk with his girlfriend. This left myself and the guy I was walking with a good 30 feet (maybe a little more) behind them. The guy next to me mentioned something flying above us, so I looked up. At first glance it looked like a plane, or maybe even a falling star.
But as I looked at it, I realized it was moving too slow to be a plane or falling star. Then as it was 'falling' toward the west, it stopped. It stayed completely still for a bit, and then it started to rise back up in the sky toward the east. When it moved it had a brilliant tail of light that followed it. It had a very bright light on its tip (what I am going to call the nose or head of the object). The two base corners had dimmer lights, one of which seemed to be turned off. The middle (belly of object) was hard to make out because it was dark. With the lights, I could kind of make out some kind of shape in the middle of the triangle, but couldn't see it too clearly.
Then, as we crossed the main street, I turned around and around to try and find it again, but it was gone. It made no noise, and was fairly close so I should have heard something if it was an aircraft. The entire event took anywhere from 5 minutes to maybe 8 at most. I'm not sure if my friend and her boyfriend saw it, as they were talking to one another, but I know the guy that I was walking with saw it, he seemed as amazed as I was. It seemed to be observing things below; it was diffidently not a normal airplane, or helicopter.
