Three bright white lights in a perfect triangle pattern that then disappeared to reappear as a blue streak moving at great speed.

I work as an airport firefighter. My shift starts at 2:00am. Since, I make this drive in the dark everyday, I'm very familiar with the normal towers, FAA obstruction beacons and such. On my drive in, near the small town of Crestline, KS. I looked North and noticed three very bright white lights in a perfect triangle pattern. They appeared to be hovering in place, possibly as low as 100-200 feet off the ground, but at night it's hard to judge that. Confused, as I knew there wasn't anything in that area cell-tower wise, my first thought was a possible military helicopter formation with their forward facing landing lights on. Again, since I work in aviation on the graveyard shift, I'm used to seeing aircraft lighting. However, these lights didn't have any of the other mandated FAA aircraft lighting. For example, there were no red beacons, no green and red directional lighting, none of it. Just three, perfectly still, perfectly symmetrical bright white! lights. Over the next 15-30 seconds, I had to keep looking back at the road since I was driving 65mph. Each time I looked away, one of the lights would disappear. First there was three, then I looked back and there were only two, then one. Until they were all gone. Still confused as to what I had seen I was simply looking in the general direction of the now dark space the lights previously occupied, and suddenly I saw a bright blue flash, followed by something streaking to the west as fast as I've ever seen anything move in my life. It disappeared over the horizon in just a few seances. That is when I realized it wasn't military helicopters.... I don't know what it was, but it was the strangest thing I've ever seen. I have not photographs or video as it all happened very quickly and I was driving.
