Four bright lights with blinking light in the middle seen over Cornilius Pass

I witnessed this strange thing over 4 years ago, but I didn't tell anyone until just recently about what I saw. I am a 50 year old woman and didn't want my family to think I was crazy. It wasn't until I mentioned it to someone I know about my experience that they told me that they also had seen a UFO in the same area. This is what happen to me. I was driving home over Cornilius Pass in Portland heading to my home in Scappoose, Or. I had been over at my parents home in Portland. As I neared Cornilius Pass just before a corner I saw 4 large lights in each corner of this object with a blinking red light in the middle, hanging above the Pine trees. There was no noice even though I was with in 150 feet of it. The lights were very bright yet my car was not lit up by the lights. I would say that the lights were at least 30 feet from light to light. My first thought was that something was going to crash on the other side of the trees. As I got closer and went around the corner in the road to the other side of the trees, I looked to see if something had crashed. I didn't see anything at all. I suddenly got a feeling of dread. I knew I had seen something I couldn't explain. I continued down the road through Cornilius Pass Road. Which is dark and not too many house are there, I kept looking through the trees to see if I could see it again. I wanted to stop on the road and look better but I was by myself and the road has no shoulders or driveways to pull into. About 1 1/2 miles from where I first saw the lights I saw through the trees a V shaped row of lights now hovering above the hill on the other side of where I was driving. I would say there was about three to four lights on each side of the V with one light in the front middle. There was also a spot light coming down from either the front of the V or just behind the V. It was spot lighting the ground below. After seeing that I hit the peddle to the car and got out of there. It was probably a year ago that I mentioned it to! a friend of my daughters what I saw. She told me that she has seen a dish shaped UFO following her on the same road. This has happen to her twice. I am sorry but I could not tell its shape because the lights were so bright but I can tell you it was big. I grew up with my dad who was a pilot and have seen many different kinds of planes and helicopters but I have never seen anything like this.
