Two very large, round, translucent, hoovering lights over interstate 10.

My husband and I observed two very large lights that appeared as yellow translucent lights hoovering over Interstate 10 near Buckeye, AZ. Neither of the objects were moving, we neared the lights as we travelled eastbound. We first saw them at apx. the 95 mile post marker. As we approached these lights and were almost beneath them, the light on the north side turned off and strobe-like lights were seen being emitted from the bottom. Within less than a minute that it took for us to exit the interstate and stop to observe, these lights disappeared in a flash in what appeared a southwest direction towards the Palo Verde Nuclear Plant. We returned westbound to mile post 103, exited the freeway and attempted to locate these lights again, but to no avail. My husband drives a truck professionally at night and has for almost 40 years. He's never seen anything like that before. The sky was mostly clear with only vapor trails visible. The stars were out and the moon visible to the west. Reentering the freewasy after stopping we once again headed eastbound on the same path previously taken apx 20 minutes earlier. Nothing. Thought you might be intereted.
