Description: I was driving home this evening down the motorway between 20:30 and 20:45 hours on Thursday, 15th December 2011. 

On passing the exit before mine I noticed three lights in very close proximity to the left of my eye about 70 degrees above the horizon. I could not see a form only three very bright lights, one white, green and red. They were flashing like beacons, but not flashing in unison and were in a sort of sequence. I noticed that it either appeared not to be moving or moving extremely slowly. It was difficult to tell as I was driving towards it at approximately 65 mph. 

As I approached the first of three warning signs for my exit the object had moved sideways to the right of it's original location directly over the motorway directly ahead of me. I noticed the traffic slowed slightly. At first I thought it must be a helicopter as they often undertake this route, but as I approached the number of lights had increased. There were now three green lights and one single red and white light. As I passed underneath I realized it was much bigger and much denser than a helicopter. I was not quite the size of a small carrier flight, but it was definitely larger than a helicopter. It was also one single and dense solid shape. There was no sign of any wings or propellers. 

It was an obtuse angled triangle (one of the angles greater than 90 degrees). It was dark in colour, not quite black, but definitely not silver. It had a dull surface and was not shiny. The green lights were located one at each corner. As a passed beneath it I could see some recesses which only appeared as shadows, but I briefly made out what appeared to be a long thin recessed rectangle/slit. The object never changed colour or form. There were no hazes or smoke trails either. There was also no sound other than the traffic which was odd as the object was so low and I expected to hear something. 

Startled by what I had seen and positive it was not a normal aircraft I took the exit as it was not safe to stop. I went left at the roundabout and returned back on a small road heading back in the direction which I came. I could no longer see the object as the trees were two high obscuring the skies. I continued to the end of the road, some 5 minutes drive and took an exit to rejoin the motorway again to retrace my route. 

The object was still in sight, but it had moved again to the right of my view. I put down my window and slowed down to around 55 mph, but I could hear no sound other than the cars. There was no humming, no propeller sound, just the sound of the traffic. The lights continued to flash in a beautiful sequence, extremely bright. The light did not travel like a beam of a spotlight either, but just was very bright and pulsing. 

I had not been drinking. I do not take any drugs other than a prescription of 10mg of Amitriptyline that I take for a muscular conditional. I was not tired or fatigued. I have experienced a terrible headache in the hours after the sighting which could be due to shock.

    Interesting that the object hung around so the witness could take a second look at it.

    The witness saw a Reptilian triangle craft.  The captain wanted a report made so had the ship become visible so she would see it and follow them.  This craft was looking for hostile ET craft and keeping the blockade of earth.
