Description: Travelling with my husband to London, he was driving. Probably observed craft between Junction 13 and J12. Saw bright triangular shape in sky, whitish looking, hovering. Both of us became aware of the object and discussed what it might be. As we travelled along it appeared that it was waiting for us and remained stationary we eventually passed underneath it, so it was about 200 feet above the car beaming down three lights on to the car, silent and at this point covered in a mist.
We were in the middle lane, the traffic was light, we got the impression that it was a very large craft, my husband was an absolute sceptic about ufos but not after this encounter. After a couple of mins the ufo shot upwards at great speed and in only a few seconds became a point of light in the sky. We never forgot the encounter.
