Unknown bright lights, and triangular shapes over Four Corners, New Mexico

A friend and I were driving back, cross-country, from California, and pulled into the Four Corners monument around midnight. As the monument was closed, and gated at that hour of the night, we drove about a mile down the highway, and pulled off, and down through a series of small hills, to a riverbank, to car-camp until the morning. We had been at rest for perhaps half-an-hour, or so, when we noticed bright white lights moving across the southern horizon. We sat on the tail-gate of the truck, and watched as these lights seemed to almost bounce around the horizon, from east to west, and back at a rate of speed that was almost unbelieveable. The lights would go from sitting still to extreem speed, and then come to a complete halt, just as quick. After watching these lights for fifteen or twenty minutes, my friend went to sleep, and I was left sitting up watching.

Shortly, thereafter, I looked directly above us, and saw what appeared to be a triangle-three points of light, rotating clockwise, and surrounding it a hexagon-eights points of light moving counter-clockwise. To say the least I was spooked, and only watched these lights for a moment. The lights were not extremely bright, but had the brightness similar of stars. Had it not been for the motion and covering up of other starlight (shadow of the shapes) I might have put it off to actually be a constellation. I don't have a clue as to what we saw (man-made, or otherwise) but am sure that what I did see was real.

Several months later, back at home in Georgia, my friend and I saw a program that had footage of similar horizon lights. Both of us got a cold chill upon seeing the footage, and we both exclaimed loudly that that was what we had seen.
