Location: San Diego, CA
Shape: Triangle
Duration: 1 min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Triangle with circular lights on each end.

My husband and I were driving West on Highway 8 past the 125 connection. In the distance I saw a lighted object hovering at 2000 feet just north of Highway 8. Object was on the right hand side of Highway and I was in the passenger seat. San Diego has many military bases and airports which I drive passed frequently. I have lived in San Diego all my life. This object looked odd to me immediately.

I was able to watch the object until we drove directly underneath it. I looked straight up at the object with my window rolled down. It appeared motionless. The object was black with a triangular shape with rounded edges. One circular light was on each of the three ends which helped identify it as triangular against the black sky. The top of the triangle had a larger circular light than the two ends. Circular lights were white and opaque. Red colored lights between the two smaller circular lights. It appeared that triangle was a 45 degree angle type with sides all the same length. Only saw the bottom of object. Maybe the length of three commercial helicopters, guessing.

I wish we could have stopped to watch object, but my husband didn't want to bother. He could not see all the details I was seeing since he was on other side of car driving. My three little boys in the back seat started to get scared, so my enthusiasm was kept at a minimum.

This object was so clear and beautiful to see. Very fine lines and circular lights very clean. Did not hear any noise as we drove beneath object. After we passed object, it moved slowly south west direction towards Mission Valley. It didn't look anything like an airplane which my husband had suggested it was. Wish I knew what it was!
