Blue & White Lights

My sister, her year-old daughter and I were driving back to Portales NM from Amarillo TX. A few miles east of Bovina, we saw blue and white flashing lights in the trees of the town. We thought there had been a wreck or a policeman had someone pulled over. But the lights rose above the trees, hovered for a few seconds, then streaked towards us. The lights were too low to be that of a plane and moved too quickly to be a helicopter. The lights continued to move through the sky and disappeared into the horizon. My sister has no memory of this. I recently watched a UFO program on the History channel; there was a segment about 2 airline pilots who saw similar lights in the same location.
