Two low flying green lights near Hwy. 5 disappear in mid-air!

My friend and I were driving northbound back from Mercey Hot Springs in the darkness on Hwy. 5 just before the eastbound junction onto Hwy. 152 when we both looked horizontally over to our left about a mile or so away across an open area and saw two pale green lights, one brighter and larger and one smaller in a tight diagonal postion to each other, flying quickly along for a few seconds and then all of a sudden completely disappearing in front of our eyes! Both lights were flying exactly parallel with our vehicle, and appeared to be about the size and speed of a small jet or helicopter preparing to land. We quickly discounted this explanation because of the green color of both lights and the fact that they immediately disappeared in what looked like mid-air. After we had turned on to Hwy. 152, we looked back behind us to our left and could see no evidence of a conventional aircraft like possibly a low flying cropduster with lights having landed on the groun! d. We did not hear any sound during the sighting, either. I'm wondering if this could be another instance of the notoriously frequent Hwy. 5 UFO? Witnesses are both female and work in health care related occupations, one is a doctor and the other is an instrument technician.
