Triangular UFO sighted near Los Banos on Hwy 5 in CA on 6/27/12 at 2:15AM

My graduate student was driving home from Las Vegas to San Francisco on 6/26/12, and arrived at a few miles before exit 379 (Shield Ave) on Hwy 5 around 2:15AM (on 6/27/12) when three of us in the car saw this triangular shape flying object about 1/2 mi in front at 3 o'clock position.

This UFO has 3 extremely bright headlights, not really flying, but gliding like a huge kite in the sky. The three lights were connected by some beefy metal frame (?) with no visible cockpit. At times it followed us from behind, right above the freeway, then along side to the east of the freeway, at no more than 300 yards away from us, hovering at our driving speed of ~80mph. We were the only sedan on the freeway, but there were plenty of trucks on lane #2. I am sure that many of the truckers have also seen it,

The three lights were extremely bright, unlike LED or halogen or any light source that I am familiar with, and would hover to the front of us at probably 2-300mph, then immediately turn 180 degree, shine the three lights directly at us, and traveling in reverse at 80-90mph. It would than just glide over to the east of us, and while hovering next to us, it was completely silent, unlike a regular plane or jet, which would have made a loud jet engine noise.

The three lights later turned into nine smaller lights with red/orange/blue/greenish color, all moving in uniform, as if it splits into three UFO.

It would then immediately merge back into 3 large bright lights, hovering mainly on the east side of hwy 5. The UFO flew next to us for almost five miles until we reached W Ness Ave (exit 385) before it flew south and disappeared into the darkness.

Wish we had a video camera. After seeing other similar youtube videos, I am glad we were not seeing things.
