Triangle shaped lights stun passer-by's on Zilwaukee Bridge.

I was on my way home from Central University in 2006 and just made my way on to the Zilwaukee bridge. Anyone who has been across the bridge knows that it takes about 2 minutes to get across by car. For about one minute you have a clear view of all the surrounding areas. In this area, I just happened to be looking South when I seen what looked like stars, but they weren't in the sky, they were hovering a little higher than the bridge about an eighth of a mile away from my location and heading south at a VERY slow speed.

My first thought was an airplane, so I opened my window to hear the engines and didn't hear anything. After I didn't hear anything, I pulled over (like you're not supposed to on the bridge) and just sat and watched the lights with my windows down. It took me a second to realize that they weren't just lights, because the space in between the lights was blocking out lights behind it. Other cars started slowing down and stopping to watch the phen! omena with me. The so-called "craft" or "glowing lights" spun around to where the point of the triangle the lights formed were heading kind of south east and it proceeded to pick up speed.

I got back on the road heading south trying to catch up to it because I knew it would eventually go right over the express way. Every car I passed seemed to have people inside looking up and pointing at the same thing I was watching. When it finally crossed the express way, I was about a half a mile away and every car in the area started hitting their brakes. After it crossed the express way, it proceeded south east and disappeared behind a large wooded area. Everyone on the road that night seen what I seen and it showed by everyone only going 20-30 mph for the next 5-10 miles. I'm a complete skeptic of UFO's, but THAT, I could not explain.
