biazzare lights in the desert where there were no living things

First of all, I am a severe sceptic. But this was so bizzare that I had to write. This event happened in the middle of the desert. The nearest person lived over 5 miles away. The small city of Sierra Blanca was about 10 miles away hidden behind mountains. My boyfriend and I were staying in this cabin which had no electricy and not running water. We go there every year for New Year's to get the hell away from people for about 6 days. We were coming back in the pickup truck from Calsbad Caverns (about 100 miles away). It was dark and the road we were traveling on was an old dirt road back to the cabin. This place in the middle of NOWHERE. As far as you can see there is desert and mountains. There is not one other home or light...nothing.

We topped a ridge and suddenly over to our left there was what seemed to be the outline of a line of "windows" in which the lights were extremly bright. A bright yellow...very intense. In fact, for a moment I was very disoriented and thought it was a builing and then I remembered that it was impossible for that to be out there. At the same time my boyfriend said, "what in the hell is THAT?" Our truck went down the road into a gully so the we couldn't see it anymore. We thought that perhaps it was our cabin on fire;the were so bright and there were two rows one on top of the other. We raced to our cabin which about a mile down the dirt road thinking it was on fire and the cabin was dark and quiet. We both agreed we saw the same thing. My boyfiend refused but I went back to look at the place and saw nothing. The next day I drove to the place and there were no buildings that could have done that. It was freaky.
