Location: Sanford, FL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 minutes
I was driving on I-4 headed east when I seen what I thought was an airplane because I was close to the Sanford Airport. As I got closer to the St. Johns River, I noticed it wasn't moving, it had 5 white lights and two red lights and was triangular in shape it had a lower base on the shape that was rectangular this is where the two red lights were. I'm doing bout 80 and I thought maybe it was just a tower so I'm looking, but I can't see any pod or any kind of stand that this thing is standing on; these are just lights on a triangle shape with a rectangular shape on the bottom of the triangle.

As I'm driving, I passed a guy who's parked in the median with no hazards on or anything. I realized later that he may have seen it too and was stopped and filming it, or taking a picture, and all the traffic that was behind me slowed way down, so I know they seen it too. The aircraft hovered above the St. Johns River from the time I was in Sanford by the zoo all the way till I couldn't see it anymore which was passed DeBary.

Again the craft was triangular in shape with a rectangle base there were two red lights on the rectangular base and there were five lights 3 on each point of the triangular shape and two white ones about Midway down the sides of the craft. It was about the length of half a football field it was about thirty feet above the St. Johns River and about 10 feet away from the bridge the object was clearly visible the lights were so bright I can't even explain it. My windows were down and there was zero large engine noise.

My car and maybe 5 other cars behind me but absolutely no airplane, helicopter, nor drone sound was heard.
