Dark triangular UFO with three white lights, one red light, hovering in the sky

I was driving home from night school on highway 14 between Roper Mountain and Pelham road. I was headed northbound. In the northwestern sky (a bit to my left out my car window), I noticed some new lights (it's a regular commute) over the top of some trees. I know you know where this is going, ha ha. Too big to be a radio tower, and stationary, so not an airplane. I, of course, used these two anchors of logic to dissuade me from what I thought I was actually seeing, but it was when I made out a chassis that my foot hit the brake and I slowed to a crawl.... it was wobbling... I started screeching all kinds of disbelieving profanities and I KNOW someone else saw it because as I was swerving off the road I saw another car wandering off to the side of the road as well, and they quickly passed.

It was triangular, dark and metallic, very sleek and smooth, with three white lights at each vertex and a concave red light, and it seemed blurry because the darn thing was wobbling a bit. I forced myself to look at the road and was surprised to find an unnatural glow around myself and the car, and as it grew brighter, I brought my eyes upward and caught it above my windshield and I craned my neck and promptly began to panic because the craft was now above my car, silent, higher up in the air but still too close for comfort, 500 feet perhaps.... I'm a horrid judge of distance....

It was at this moment I smelled, yes I know.... sulfur.... something like sulfur, so strong I held my hand over my face. I was fixated on the craft, but I had to look at the road.... kept swerving once again, thank goodness the road was now empty, and, yes, of course, when I looked back up it was gone. Nowhere in the sky...
