Unfamiliar craft with blinding reflective light in a sunny blue sky.

A triangular air craft was sighted in the South sky on I-25 between the Alameda and Jefferson exits. It stayed stationary and was shadowed as the sun light was bright. As I stared at the craft to determine what it was, there was a bright blinding flash that came from the craft and shone for about 15 seconds. It flashed the blinding light a second time for another 10 to 15 seconds.

I tried to determine what it was and what was the source of the blinding reflection or flash of light but then it suddenly disappeared. It seemed to pixelate away in a matter of a few seconds. I tried hard to find where it could have gone but it had disappeared.

Here are the facts: it was a clear and sunny day with a blue sky. I was in heavy congested traffic. I was driving south and traffic was stop and go. I am certain that others had to of seen this triangular object. It was lower in the atmosphere as a plane would be that was close to a landing strip. This was definitely not an airplane or other known aircraft. The flash was not a light but more of a blinding reflection as if someone had a mirror and was deflecting sun light into my eyes from the craft.
