|traveling 156 we noticed what appeared to be a satalite or plane but to close to ground as we got closer a told my sun to look at the moon as it appeared strange so small then as we got closer the light was gone and we saw a v shape of small red lights on some type of craft, the lights changed again to red and blue on both sides and white in the middle, my son said they were following us, and another apeared in front of us,as desribed eairler started with a light like the moon but about a tenth of the size my son was filled with fear as i was mezmerized going north on i five we could still see the light in the distance for about 20 miles north.
this is a remote area a road carved out in the mountain, there were a few other cars in route and we noticed some pulleed of the road looking at the sky,it seems to me that the bright light shining the the moon was probably , a camafloge to hide the craft it was not trying to hide as we were close it was at one time about 50 feet from us. the object at times had a tail similair to flames but of blue white color. i also noticed a strange smell.shortly after that my new car had an unexplained warning beep for about a mile.
