Location: Grapevine, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:15 minutes
Black triangle passes directly through stopped cars on California highwayI5 between Bakersfield and Grapevine @0:30ish AM.

Unexplainable empty gas tank forced us to exit highway I-5 south into a small town that was completely enveloped in a thick almost greenish brown haze that had a sharp pungent odor, gut feelings forced us to flip a bitch and stop at the next exit.

The two of us distinctly remember filling the tank about 60 miles ago and driving straight through, but the sun was high in the sky, and now its nearly midnight.

As we leave the gas station, I look out the back window and no more than 100 ft above I see a large black metallic wedge shaped craft. Out of pure shock, I exclaim, "WHAT ((deleted)) IS THAT?" My best friend, the driver, warily ask what was what. My logical mind in denial dismissed her question by saying I saw an airplane. We had been traveling almost two weeks from Idaho and hardly covered any ground, despite not stopping more than absolutely nessesary and staying on highway I-5 south.

About 30 miles further down the highway the car slowed to a stop, as well as the cars behind us and the cars traveling the opposite direction northbound.

The black wedge craft dropped vertically from the air and hovers about 10ft from the ground to the right side of our car and passes between the stop traffic, turns the opposite direction and travels beside I5 northbound lane.

We stopped at the next exit to process the event and we see the craft in the distant sky. I took a photo using Snapchat
