Triangular Craft Sighted in Kansas City

I have a recent Skywatch sighting to report.
Last Tuesday night, I was leaving a Kansas City tavern where I was playing pool in a pool league. Myself and a friend were in the alley behind the Quaff Buffet, near 10th and Broadway downtown. It was about 10:00 pm, Central Standard time.
I happened to be looking up, when I noticed what I first thought was a flock of geese flying over us in a V formation. Nine altogether, one leading and four trailing each side.
But then you could see the dark triangular outline. It was a black triangle. I have seen a huge one in the past near McConnell AFB in Wichita, Kansas a few years back. This one was much smaller, or else a lot farther away. The lights were configured differently too.
It was about ready to drift out of sight over a building, when I mentioned it to my friend. "Look, there's a UFO", I said. He glanced up just as they were drifting where a building blocked the view. Then he looked at me and smiled.
"Did you see it?", I asked.
"No, man", he said. "You're just kidding me, right?".
"C'mon", I said, grabbing his arm as I ran towards the middle of the alley. He saw I was serious and we ran about twenty steps and looked up. Sure enough, there it was. it was totally silent and was drifting rather than flying. It had quite a yaw going, and was not going straight ahead but drifting in about a 45 degree tangent from its front.
We could see it very clearly for about another full minute.
"That's a stealth", said my friend.
"Look at how slow it's moving", I said. "It's moving so slowly, it's almost hovering. And you can't hear a thing. It's a black triangle."
As others have already pointed out, the stealths do not have these flight characteristics. I have seen them a number of times, and they did not have these lights lit up underneath them either.
There have been no other reports. Yet it flew right over the downtown area. I cannot validate the altitude, but the appearance was that it was fairly small and gliding at around 700 to 1000 feet at most.
Why would they purposely fly a secret aircraft over downtown KC where anyone looking up can see it? And all light up? And how do they silently drift obliquely like they do?
I can't believe how frequent these sightings are becoming.
