Location: Nashua, NH
Shape: Triangle
Duration:30-45 seconds
Large triangle-shaped object hovering over highway

At about 12:15am, while traveling North on Everett Turnpike in Nashua near exit 4 I could see 2 white lights in the sky, accompanied by a blinking red light, above the overpass at exit 5, around a mile away. I immediately assumed it was a plane, since most planes I've seen have white lights and some sort of blinking light on the bottom. As I got closer to exit 5, I noticed the object was not "flying" east-west or north-south like an airplane, but was instead "hovering" high above the overpass at exit 5. As I got even closer, I expected to see the object prove to be a helicopter, perhaps a police helicopter, with it being so close to the Nashua Police department. Right before I went under the overpass at exit 5 I rolled down my window and got a good look at the object. It was a dark brown or black colored triangle (not a boomerang shape) with two white lights on each side of all three points of the triangle (almost like quotation mark! s), as well as a red blinking light that blinked about once per second not directly in the center of the bottom of the object, but a little left of center of the bottom. I also considered it possible that this was a drone, since I have one and am familiar with how they look in the night sky. But once I came out from under the overpass, I was in total amazement at how big and close it was to me. It was enourmous, and it was absolutely not a drone or a plane. I estimate it's size to between a large truck and a fighter jet. The object emitted no sound that I could hear. I also saw at least two cars pulled over on the highway, the occupants trying to film the night sky, one on each side of the highway. I was not the only one who saw this craft.
