I was driving home from work when an large orange glowing light the size of my thumb at arms length, was hovering in the night sky. it made absolutely no sound the whole time I observed it. It began to slowly move to the south 5 mph, I was by this time pulled off the freeway & was looking with bynoc,s. I saw a six sided structure that was about 10'in lenght & 3' wide. As it slowly moved away to the south, it tilted at dif. angles, with a bright orange glow at the bottom. The sides where lite up orange but very lightly as if transparent but not, all the edges were outlined with the same oange light, but stronger than the side's, thus outlining the shape. many times it tilted on it's axis in about 150 degrees upward, never tlting bellow horizontal, it moved from possition to possition stopping at different angles. meaning the six sided structure above the bright orange light was moving independent to the southern movement the intire object was doing. this six sided structure above the bright orange glow moved in halting movement's. I got the impression that it was looking for something. Actually it was very beautiful. Then to my astonishment it shrank down to a small point of orange light (about 1/5 it's original size) & began to move away faster, it was coming towards me at first & was about 200'to 250'up & at it's closest 75'. as it moved away about a mile it turned into three orange lights in a triangle shape, this was by naked eye due to my getting back into my truck & chasing after it. it then stopped abruptly & went back towards the north west. I slammed on my brakes & jumped out again & by the time I got my bynoc's trained on it, it was slowing down & then stopped, it immediately lower itself to the ground. it was about 300 to 500 ft. away now, it went into a big stand of tree's, I could see it on the ground inside the tree's, but not so good anymore. but I could still see the glow of the orange lights inside the stand of trees. I watched for about 4 or 5 min, when I desided to try & get closer ! to the s tand of tree's, I had to get back in my truck & get off the freeway to try & find where it went down, I had no luck in finding it again even though I did find the spot in the tree's where it went down. I also discovered a large crowd of people standing outside of a house that wasn't far from where the stand of trees where, I stopped to ask them if they had seen anything, they hadn't. After I watched this thing land I began to shake a great deal, no dought due to fear & excitement. I stayed aroud the general area for about 20 min. & saw nothing more. I was a little tired, but not on drugs or any mind altering substance. Thank you
