Triangular shaped UFO over Nice, south of France (January 2007)

This "sighting" happened in Nice, South of France, in January 31st around 18h30.

I was driving home after work with my girlfriend, and as usual I took the highway A8 from Antibes to Nice.

When we were passing by Villeneuve Loubet we noticed a very intense and bright light on the sky, more or less 250 meters above ground.

At the beginning I thought it could be an airplane, because the Nice Airport wasn't that far. My girlfriend suggested that maybe it could be an helicopter.

But as soon we were approaching, we realized that the speed was very very slow.

Its direction was opposite to ours, like it was taking the highway direction opposed to us.

As we passed under it we were surprised to see that it had a triangular shape, with the same size as a small airplane. Besides the strong light in the front, we saw green lights (which weren't blinking) on the borders.

The sky was already dark at that time, but it seemed that this object had a dark color too. Between dark grey and black.

I was driving with a speed around 80Km/h which allowed us to have a small glimpse of some of its details.

If it was a normal aircraft for sure it hadn't any normal patterns.
