Shape: Triangle
Duration:5 Minutes
Spotted Triangular object while exiting highway, almost crashed into cop, was not even pulled over.

While exiting I-75 south onto M55 at Houghton Lake, in Michigan, a little after darkfall, I spotted a triangular off to my left side. The object was huge, silent and low, about 200-300 feet up and at least 70 feet accross. There was a white light at each corner of the object. I could see the shape of the object against the night sky, which was most stunning, it was a triangle. It was moving north east. I was so intently watching the object, that I did not notice that I was driving off the right side of the road. As I violently swerved back onto the exit ramp, I nearly hit a Michigan State Police suburban that was parked on the side of the road. I fully expected to be pulled over, and hoped the trooper had seen the abject also. I pulled alongside the trooper, expecting a strange look, when I noticed his dome light was on, with a brief case open on his lap, frantically searching through the papers in the case. I waited for a couple moments at the stop sign waiting to be pulled over. After I was not arrested, I excitedly got back on the highway in the opposite, in persuit of the triangular craft. I followed for about a half mile north, as the craft moved northeast and I lost sight as I went Due north. The direction the craft was heading was towards a military base in Grayling, Michigan. I am close to a local private pilot, I am quite sure the craft was headed toward restricted airspace.
