I saw a triangular shaped craft with bright lights hovering near the 405 freeway in Bellevue/Kirkland on June 15th, 2008 at 12:30 am.

I was driving northbound on the 405 freeway entering Bellevue Washington with a friend at about 12:30 a.m. On Sunday, June 15th, 2008 when I first noticed something strange. I was about a mile away from the object and the first thing I noticed were bright lights in the sky. My first reaction was wondering why an aircraft would be flying so low near a city, from the distance I was at I couldn't tell the colors of the lights but I was also confused about why the lights of this aircraft were so bright, much brighter than airplane lights would be. As I got closer I could see it more clearly, I could see that there were bright lights on either end of something, at that point I wasn't close enough to tell the body of the aircraft, and the lights had a large light pink color in the middle with green, blue, purple, and yellow lights on the side that were not as large as the pinkish light, both ends had identical lights of equal size and brightness. The lights were flashing in a strange pattern that made no sense to me. The lights seemed to flashing in a nonsensical way, the lights were also very bright with very rich hues. As we were coming up to it we were looking straight on at it so I couldn't see a third light from our first vantage point, but I could see faint light coming down from the middle of the object.

When we got close to it we could see that it was hovering, not exactly over the freeway but to the left of it a little bit, since I was in the driver seat I got a better look at it than the passenger did. The craft was moving very slowly and was hovering effortlessly, it didn't seem to have a destination, and it was moving slightly higher in the sky and to the left, but more so it seemed that it was just surveying things. The way it moved seemed very effortless and moved in a diagonal motion while going up. It was about 30 stories high above us and had it been flying in a city it would have ran into buildings. We drove under the object and this is when I looked up at it and saw perfectly that it was a large triangle with a dark circle underneath it and the lights on every corner of it. The color of the entire craft was grayish and the black circle stood out in contrast to it. The lights were equally large and bright with the same colors on each corner. The music in the car was off and the windows were down and we listened to see if we could hear any sound coming from it, but there was nothing, had it been a plane or a helicopter flying that low it would have been very loud, but there was no sound radiating from this. Everything about it was unlike anything I had ever seen, and the colors were strange hues that they were very hard to define. At the point when we drove under it we were leaving Bellevue and entering Kirkland and as we drove past it and away from it, it was still flying in relatively the same spot, give or take a few yards.
