3 Extraordinary close Ufo encounters!!!!!!!!!!!!

2 Friends and i were driving home from a 7 day stay at a resort in oregon. We were driving north bound on the highway. Heading towards Washington State. When The driver and i noticed 2 Extremly bright lights from a distance. I pointed it out to my friend in the back seat. We started to discuss what it could be. The driver suggested 2 cruise missles of some sort. The lights appeared to be hovering up and down and a steady rate going the opposite way down on the north bound highway. Almost as if observing us in vehicles, poosible taking scans of some sort. As we got closer we noticed the lights were comeing from 2 ufo's going south in the north bound lane. There was other traffic on the highway at the time, so im sure there were other witnesses other then ourselves. Even the car infront of us stop abruplty. I also noticed a semi truck pulled over to the left side of the highway going northbound. The driver of our vehicle slowed down alot so i stuck my head out the window while the car was in motion so i got a good look at the crafts. The vessicles were about 20 feet from the concrete of the highway. There was an extremly bright light in the front of the vessicle, then what appeared to be contrete with 3 columns of hieroglyphical writing. With another brighlight at the end of the vessicle. We got off the highway about 2 exits up and went into a church parking lot that was write off the freeway to smoke a ciggerate and talk about what we seen before we left the area. When we noticed a 3rd craft going east passing over the highway. This vessicle was triangle shaped, dark green with red and yellow tubing that was intergrated into the bottom of the vesslicle. Possibly some type of piping with fuel being fed to the engines. This triangle shaped ship was moving a bit faster and was noiser then the other 2 seen previously. After the triangle shaped vessicle passed over us and was no longer in sight we got back in the car about 5 mintues later and left. As we approached the onra! p to continue driving home to washington we noticed a army truck with 2 soldiers standing on the side of the onrap looking up at the sky ignoring any other distractions. Diddnt even look at us as we drove by. We were gonna stop and ask what they were looking at but then we changed our minds and got on the highway and went home. Were these 3 vessicles some type of new secret military aircrafts or did the army respond to ufo's intrusion into our airspace. We might never know. But i enjoyed the once in a life time experince if they were extraterrestrials from a advanced race outside of our solar system.
