San Carlos Sonora, Mexico We were driving to a restaurant near San Carlos, Mexico and I was a front seat passenger in the van. We were headed West in a dark section of the road with the closest habitation about two miles away. We were in a canyon between two extinct volcanos (Tetas de Cabra ) and the Sea of Cortez was about 3 miles away.

Suddenly I looked up in the dark sky through the windshield and saw a triangular object leisurely proceeding in the opposite direction (East). It had multiple small yellow lights on its underside that gave it the triangular shape. There was no noise and the driver of the van did not see it as he was looking to the left.

The altitude is hard to describe but I would estimate 500 ft. I doubt it was a private plane as VFR flight is illegal after dark in Mexico.

I plan to go to that same area and hang out tonight.

Nothing seen last night.
