9 unknown lights off interstate heading towards colorado springs. 6 unknown lights over the mountains with planes and watching

we were having bad lightning at night. we were coming home from visiting family. we saw a set of 3 lights. they were not moving or blinking like normal planes. then other sets would apear out of nowhere. they would appear after lightning. we were driving south on the interstate towards colorado springs. at the most there were probablly 9 lights total. there were cars parked along both sides of the road, so i could not tell you how many people saw it.they then started to line up, kind of like being in a 45 degree angle. they then disappeared. we never pulled over, we were driving the whole time. i then thought i saw something on the ground, and there were jeeps driving around it. i started to park and try to walk to where it was, but it was like you could see it clear from the interstate however it was a good 2 miles from the interstate(if that makes any sense). well we drove for a while and i decided to turn around and try to find some sort of road to see where it was because i kind of knew where it was. well i could not find it so we started to head for home. then over the mountains a set of 3 lights just was there.then another set of 3 came over the mountains. well we decided to pull over on the interstate to watch. there were other cars but i dont know how many people. then littler lights would come from the bigger lights and go to the opposite 3 sets of lights. the lights would come and go, but there would always be 3 there. it was like they were rotating and spinning and not always were they in a triangular shape. well we decided to go to a scenic off ramp because not ever car was stopping and the speed limit on colorado interstate is 75. i was getting nervious that someone would hit us because colorado drivers are not always the best decision makers. anyhow we get to a scenic ramp. i get out of my car and look up. there were all sorts of planes and i think helicopters flying around. i mean a lot, so i took that as a sign that these lights were not ours. we watched them until we got bored because ! they wer e at the mountains, never did they come closer than that. we got back on the interstate and watched the lights until we got into colorado springs. all the street lights and other lights blocked what we had been seeing. we went home. there were still many planes flying around when we got home for the night. even the next day there were more than normal amounts of planes flying around low and high. the only reason i though you would like to know is because there were so many car pulled over watching so im curious to see if any one else has reported it.
