large low flying triangle in oklahoma

As I was driving to town I noticed a large triangular object low to the ground appear to my left & and front a short ways ahead of me. The size, height it was flying, & speed it was moving was so unbelievable that I pulled over on the shoulder, got out of my truck & watched as slowly passed overhead from south to north.

I believe there were 3-4 other vehicles that stopped & watched in amazement as well. The object was triangular in shape with a bright light at each point, it flew at maybe 15-20mph I would est & it made no sound whatsoever.

It flew slightly higher than the tree tops, low enough I remember thinking I could hit it with a slingshot. The craft was so close u could easily see that it was a solid, metallic object, not a balloon or blimp.

The size was the most amazing to me. It had to be something like 300-400 ft in width & length. I've never seen anything that looked Like what I seen, the size that it was, that could move at that slow of a speed & ! stay airborne.

I have told numerous friends & family about this event, from moments after it happened to yrs later. I never reported it due to my not being able to comprehend what it was I saw, how can I report it publicly without being laughed at. I only do this now after seeing a program about the phoenix lights, & when they showed a picture, it was almost like I was there on the side of the road again. It was the same object I watched pass directly over me.
