My wife and I saw an '8' shaped white light in the sky move very quickly (vertically)across a great distance, then disappear.

My wife and I were on our way own when my wife noticed something in the sky. She asked me "is that a plane?" I was driving so I couldn't look right away, but after a few seconds I looked up and saw an '8' shaped white light in the sky several miles ahead of us. It moved vertically, while swerving from side to side. The light went off once, then after a second or so, it came back on, quite far away from where it was when the light went off. Then after another second or so, it went off again and disappeared. It's a pretty clear night so I don't know where it could have gone. The strangest thing about it was the movement and the speed at which it seemed to have traveled. I would have dismissed it as a helicopter if it weren't for these two factors. My wife is convinced it's a UFO, but I'm wondering if there is another explanation. I'd appreciate an e-mail with any information regarding this 'sighting'. My wife and I have never seen anything like this before. This is my first time filing a report of this kind.
