Duration:5 minutes
black triangle , 3 lights, silent swift movement, near air force base

Was driving to a wedding,I was at the wheel,with my girlfriend sitting next to me and two friends in the back, from Santa Barbara to Chico. Some where,about 2 or so hours both north of vasilia and after dark, I saw some out of place lights above the highway.At distance and just glacing they almost seemed to line up with the highway lights and may be easily missed.But then the object opened to face us and there were 3 lights slightly different in color.I got very excited and asked my girlfriend to confirm what I was seeing.She saw it.My two friends in the back were in a heated debate and never looked.We got very close,100 yards? I began to see beyond the lights the shadowy outline of a triangle.The seemingly as if it knew we were watching and getting close it smoothly and silently accelerated across the horizon maintaining its 30ft. elevation.The way it moved was truly stunning. Began so slowly one wasn't sure it was moving next thing you knew it was miles away. I believe Edwards AFB was near by. Amazing experience.
