triange shaped craft with three bright lights came within ten yards of our car on hwy in Nevada

My wife and two kids (3yrs and 4yrs old at the time), were driving back from California, headed toward Las Vegas on Interstate 15. It was a very clear night, with lots of stars. I forget if the date was Jan. 2nd or 3rd of 2000, but it was between 10:30p.m.-11:30p.m. and my children were asleep in the back seat in there car seats. I was driving, and my wife was passenger in the front seat. We were near the Nevada border( within 25 miles either way), when my wife and I noticed 3 bright, white lights in a row, one behind the other. They were about 200 yards in front of us, and about 15 yards to the right side of the highway,(south) at a hight of approximately three telephone poles. They appeared to be hovering, or moving very slowly toward us. As we aproached within 50 yards, the lights began to ratate, slowly, as if on a side of a plate that was perpindicular and spinning downward. My wife and I nearly lost our breath as it came right at us. My wife thought it was actually going to crash into us, but as the spiraling lights appeared to almost hit the ground in the ditch next to hwy.(aprox. 10 yards from car at a 1:00 angle), the lights abruptly went out. I thought for sure the thing should have crashed and that was why the lights went out, but there was no crash sound. My wife then told me that right as the lights went out it abruptly made 90 degree turn toward the south and disapeared at a rediculous amount of speed. Since I was driving, all I saw were the lights(about the size of tires, spaced aprox. 10 yards apart). My wife however was able to see the dark shodow of a craft, stating it was wing shaped, moderately flat, with the three lights positioned on the side, and bars hanging from the front(possible landing gear). The craft made so sound at any time, and for being so close to our car when abruptly changing direction there was no turbulance from any propulsion system. I am curious if we have any technology in propulsion systems that would allow the sudden direction of! change, with abrupt changes to extreme speeds, without making a sound.
