I don't know what it was. More modern than anything that I can think of.

My brother and I were on a 3 day vacation from work heading southbound to visit our mother in Fountain Valley, CA. Starting our journey from Hayward, CA. Accompanying us in the rental minivan were two other females. My brother and the other female sat in the back.

Approximately 2 hrs. north of Fountain Valley, CA (140 miles), on Interstate 5, I noticed a "small airplane" - with bright, but not blinding lights wobbling closely above the power line poles. My first thought was "Just my luck, an airplane is about to land on me, or on the freeway ahead -- during my vacation..." this lasted for less than one minute, within the next 10 seconds the "airplane" was on my left side (northbound of I-5) traveling steadily with the speed of my vehicle (70-75mph), in my direction, then the word "ufo" came to my mind, yet still skeptical,

I called out to my brother, of whom I thought was sleeping, he replied "I see it" At this point my thought was: "I must eliminate all other! possibilities". I then rolled my window down to hear for any motor/engine noises, but only wind from my traveling vehicle was what I heard, then the craft at least doubled my speed, veered left, at least tripled my speed-that's when I clearly saw 3 white balls of lights in perfect linear formation, but for less than one second during its highest acceleration the middle "ball of light" became orangish, then white again during deceleration,then it made a fast and perfect u-turn and landed on a road of some sort. Lights dimmed.

I had to get back to driving, so I turned my head towards front of my van again. This all happened within 3-5 minutes. I asked my brother, "What was that?" he didn't answer. I asked "Was that a ufo?", he replied "What else could it be?".
