triangular shaped object flying over highway in The Netherlands

I was driving my car towards the North of the country. My brother and I had just seen X-men 2 at the cinema. We were driving on a highway and there was a policecar with lights coming from the sidelane. Therefore I changed lanes and had to look in my rearview mirror. But on the rightside, looking past the mirror, through my windowshield I saw two red lights(in a horizontal line), crossing the highway from the east to the southwest. I did not think much of it at first but a second later there was a third light, which was going on and of in a white/green flash. That is when I realized the craft had a triangler shape. I shouted to my brother that there was a UFO. We got all excited and we could not believe our eyes. We thought we were kidding ourselves as we had just seen X-men 2. The craft hoovered over the highway from the east to the west. The red lights were not flashing therefore we knew it was not a helicopter. It hung over and open field for a while (a minute or so) and than sped off. I got off the highway and started following it. My brother rang my dad on the cellphone and my dad said that the camera was still in the booth of the car. I stopped the car and got the camera out. By the time my brother was recording it, it was already far away. On the recording, which is 20 seconds, you can only see one red light as a dot in the night sky.

We knew it had to be a UFO because of the shape of it. It was a bit like a helicopter but it could not have been, because it was flying at such a height that a helicopter would have looked bigger, and there was no sound coming from the aircraft. It is amazing that not more people saw the object, because there were more cars (I think three more) that could have seen the thing. Amazing!
