Flying object

My sister, mother and I were driving to my sister's house last night, along a dark rresidential street. My mother saw something that caught her eye and stopped the car. Directly in front of us was a strange formation of lights. I can't say how high it was, as I'm a horrible judge of measurement, but I assumed it was a helicopter. The thing was, however, that the lights didn't look like any lights I've seen on a helicopter at night. They were a bluish white and made out the shape of an oval, as it was dark, I could not make out the shape, I would assume it was some sort of disk, however, the lights only gave me a 2 dimensional feel of the object. I rolled down the window of the car to try to hear the rotors of a helicopterm by it's distance, it should have been audible, however, I didn't hear a thing. At this point my little sister started panicking a little bit, and the shape started to move; very slowly. My mother decided to follow where it was going, as it seeme! d to be following the road we were on. This chase occurred for a few minutes, and then as it was passing some trees, the object gained speed and suddenly disappeared from our line of sight. Now the part that bothers me about the whole thing isn't the sighting itself, as is the fact that my sister nor my mother remember seeing anything. All I get from them whenever I ask them is a weird look.
