Location: Newport Beach, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 minutes
Hovering black triangle with different colored lights- dropped vertically within 3-5 seconds

My sister and I were driving down to Newport Beach-Pelican Hill area on our regular beach drive – it was around 9pm PST. There is a specific road that is perpendicular to PCH. We were coming back from the beach towards where we live, towards inland. On this particular road, the beach is behind you and there is a drop- huge valley on your right hand side and huge trees-blocking houses on the left hand side. I was in the passenger seat and I immediately saw this black, huge triangular mass hovering over the side with the houses/trees. It was hovering like I have never seen anything hover. It was huge in mass, cannot recall the exact size. It was triangular and it had numerous lights on each side of the triangle- lights varying from red, green and blue. The lights would alternate flashing. Once I spotted this UFO, I immediately told my sister who was driving and also spotted it. The strange thing about this UFO is that I could clearly make out the different co! lor lights but could not see the black mass- seemed like it was maybe “super black” or had some kind of invisible-ness. It was hovering in the same position for about 1-2 minutes and as we were driving by, the black mass suddenly dropped vertically down into the unknown trees/houses. I have never seen a flying unit drop vertically within 3-5 seconds of in the air. I do have a drawing of the mass I drew when I got home.
