ET Stops for Big Gulp?

Driving Home from Tampa,traveling north on hwy 41,my wife and I saw what looked like A perfect triangle hovering over a convienance store.

Craft appeared about 45 feet on the sides with 4 lights all white,3 in a line and one in the middle of one edge and somewhat dimmer. no markings were observed.The skin looked like it had a textured surface.The strangest thing was it didnt really didnt Light the ground up an more than the streetlights at the intersection.

Craft was about 40 feet off the ground.Silent The light went red right next to it,so I stopped.

Craft may have been moving very slowly,like walking speed,because as soon as I stopped it floated over my vehicle and passed us going southwest about 2-3 mph.

I actually could have gotten out ,picked up a rock and hit it easily.

on the ride back to hernando we passed 2 others of the same look,they were traveling south parallel to hwy us 41,about 1/4 mile from roadway.

I posted this Before and My email was released somehow resulting in a government spook sending me some disturbing correspondance.
