Duration::00:45
Triangle shaped craft with 4 white lights and 1 blinking red light passed silently overhead

I saw white lights approaching in the sky as I drove North down Oberlin Rd. in Raleigh NC. As I neared the bridge over Wade Ave., the lights got closer and closer until a triangle shaped craft passed slowy overhead. It had two white lights at the narrow end of the equilateral triangle and two on the broad end, with a smaller blinking red light in the middle. The craft passed over head with no noise whatsoever and continued in the opposite direction. It was about 300 feet over tree top level, and appeared to be the about twice the size of my car. Had I heard engine noise, I would have thought from the shape that it was fighter jet of some kind.
