I5 09/14/08 Three lights low to the freeway, went into a field

Driving from LA just at 8:30 to 9 on I5. Saw something that we can't explain.

My girlfriend niece and i were driving up from LA back to the Bay Area. We saw three lights that didn't appear to be beams coming towards us low to the ground. First thing we thought was an airplane was crashing. The three lights were vertical, then went horizontal and darted across the freeway. We couldn't really tell what the shape of the aircraft was but it almost looked triangular and or boomerang. When it was tilting to the side i swear it was black but we really couldn't see the body of it.

It was the about the size of a freeway lane and seemed about 3 feet high, but it was kinda hard to determine the size. It was not that far away, which was weird because the lights were not blinding.

The lights turned of when across the freeway and seemed to fly almost like a kite, very smoothly.

We turned off the radio and could not hear any kind of aircraft. It went into a field and vanished to latter pop up and seemed to hover.

We were 10 miles south of the 165 on the I5. I tried to drive over to check out what it was but both my girlfriend and niece were freaking out and didn't want me driving towards it. Anyone have a similar experience on 09/14/08?? Very curious.
