|I was driving west and as I approached the river I saw a cluster of lights (red and white, flashing) directly above the east bound bridge on the other side of the small river. My first thought was that there must have been lights attached to antennas above the new bridge station because it was very low and hovering above the bridge. (At this time I could see no solid shape, only the lights.) As my road turned, I could see that this was now slowly moving closer (northeasterly) and was in fact a narrow triangular shaped object. At one point I could see underneath the object clearly and it appeared to be very large, gray or silver with a completely flat bottom and had a series of two lights at each point of the triangle, flashing red, white and now I could see blue as well. It also seemed to be very quiet as I am used to planes and helicopters in our area, but this did not make the noise like they do at this low of an altitude. (This object was only between 7-10 stories up and I could not hear any sound from it.) I was not in an area to pull over and my destination was less than a mile away. I could still see it slowly moving east-northeast above the hills.
Upon reaching my destination I could still see the flashing lights very small in the distance directly eastward, but no longer moving. At this time I told another of what I saw and we watched for another few minutes with binoculars as this flashing never moved. The lights were still flashing over the hill when I left at 7:35 PM.
I have been completely shocked that there has not been any talk about this in our local media. I simply cannot believe others did not see this too as I was not the only one on that road and there are many homes in the area.
