Traveling Westbound on I-64 in the Williamsburg/James City County area. I noticed a triangular formation of three white lights off to the right side of the highway that seemed quite close. The object was partly obscured by the trees along the highway, and for a few seconds it was completely hidden by them. After a few seconds we could see it again because of a break in the trees, and it was much further away than it had been when first sighted. My boyfriend was in the passenger seat, and we both agreed it was traveling faster than a plane would. From inside the car with the windows up, we heard no noise. The strangest thing about the lights was the formation. It was as if they were on a flat surface facing us directly. To better explain, if this had been a plane, it would have been as if the plane's nose was pointing directly upward from the ground and we were looking at the bottom/top of the plane. Even after it had gotten farther away, the lights were still in this perfect triangular shape. The lights were not blinking, they were bright white and did not seem to give off a surrounding glow or beam. I have reported seeing one other strange object in June of 2006, on the same highway, in relatively same area (Newport News/Williamsburg).
