Location: Napa, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:15 seconds
Triangle shape with orange white lights moved directly above me while driving.

Friday 1/21/11 6:20 PM Cold and Clear.

First seen 50 to 100 feet above ground just above tall trees on Silverado Trail as I was heading North, it crossed the road silently and very moving slowly ESE, NO sound, and moved very slowly, multiple weird orange/white lights. No visible form just lights in a triangle shape. The side facing me had a bank of orange lights with brighter lights on either end. The triangle shape was defined by this bank of lights and the single less bright light on the other side. It appeared to move sideways and not the direction of the triangle shape. I first viewed it on the west side of the road just above and before the trees, as I approached closer, it moved across the road DIRECTLY ABOVE ME and the 5 cars behind me. I strained to look though the windshield above me as I drove underneath it. NO SOUND, no wind, nothing as it moved slowly across the road and me driving underneath (~50 mph). It was at least 100 feet wide. I still cannot believe what I witnessed with my own eyes. It was NOT! a balloon, plane or helicopter. I thought about pulling over to take a picture but had too many tailgaters behind me and no safe place to pull over safely until the hills and trees would block my view. Napa, Ca is close to Travis Air Force Base.
