UFO sited from highway.

The object was bright, very bright, bright enough to be mistaken for a very bright star at a distance. It moved very slowly, but was moving at a rate visible to the naked eye when we passed under it. As we passed under it, I tried to get a glimpse of it's shape and deducted it to be a solid form, either circular or triangular, maybe cubical. The friend sitting in the passenger seat leaned his head out the window and said he thought it looked like a triangle. There was a single light at the side moving forward, rather large and seeming to take the entire corner of the object. Roughly 1 and a half minutes later, after leaving the highway then returning to it, the object had easily moved another 4 miles - much farther than the pace it had been going should have allowed. It was continuing to move south when I again left the highway, a change from the western course it had been taking. The object was clearly not a plane or helicopter, nor any other flying craft I've ever seen for myself. My counterpart sitting in the passenger seat agreed, and also accepts that what we saw was likely some sort of UFO.
