UFO encounter along a country road

Driving home from a play one night, my mother and I were making a steady pace along a country road.

We then noticed two lights ahead on either side of the road, and a dark silouhette connecting the two lights. The exact shape of the silouhette I'm unsure of, as it was night).

Because of the fact that it was a country road, there were no street lights that would have been mistaken for the two lights. (We lived on that road, and were very familiar with any abnormalities). We thought nothing of it initially (it wasn't something that was highly apparent). My mom then turned to me and pointed it out, asking what it was. I said that I didn't know.

We both went into a panic and she slowed the car down. There was no sound coming from it, so it could not have been mistaken for an airplane. We sat and watched it moving up slowly, then it flew up into the air maybe 200 yards, and flipped over completely, flying away at lightening speed. I would guestimate that it was about 250 feet from one light to the next.

All I know is that it scared the crap out of us both, and nobody believes us to this day. It's almost a unspoken secret between the two of us.
