Triangular craft flies over highway... low altitude... then disappears only to reappear later

I was driving South on the 14 freeway near the Gorman Junction when a triangular shaped craft crossed the freeway traveling East directly in front of my truck at about 50 to 75 feet in altitude. Through my windshield I could see the craft clearly as it stood out from the orange haze of the city lights. It was dark colored, black and grey with a patterned design on the bottom. It didn't look metallic, there were no reflections. It had a dim white light at each point and a very bright pulsing white orb directly in the center underneath. It flew somewhat slowly, in a gliding motion, rotating slowly and emitting no sound. I exited the freeway at Gorman road and turned East to watch it. It traveled low and slowly along the outskirts of Lancaster before circling around the city and vanishing in the mountains to the south. I snapped serveral pictures with a disposable of the craft as it flew around the city. (I will send a copy if they come out.) After the craft disappeared, I got back on the freeway heading South once more. About a mile from the Antelope Valley Mall the craft suddenly appeared to the East. It glided over the freeway again! I know the cars behind me had to have seen it. It flew directly over them. This time I could see the craft at eye level as there is a slope to the east. I was unable to grab my camera and the craft flew behind me and into the west somewhere. There were other planes in the area at the time and I am sure that what I encountered twice was no conventional aircraft. There were many other witnesses on the freeway that night that must have seen this thing. It was huge... AND... It practically flew right over Lancaster.
