Shape: Triangle
Duration:30 min
huge triangle shaped object with 3 extremely bright lights on bottom

We saw a very,very bright ligh in the sky and didn't think too much of it,thought maybe a star or light on top of a tower or bldg, we drove another 15 min we the light got brighter and we were getting closer,realized it was not a light or star.It was hovering over the Clark bridge but high up.All of a sudden a Blue light on the left and a red light on the right faintly started blinking and the craft started moving.As itwas getting closer we could see that there were actually 3 bright white lights underneath in the shape of a triangle, as it went over us (we pulled over as did another car)you could see a huge,solid triangle shape (football field or bigger)The 3 bright lights on bottom suddenly went off and it kept going,abslolutly no noise, after several minutes the 3 bright lights came back on and it kept going but seemed to be getting higher in the sky as it went.
