Silent, hovering and moving lights close to the highway.

I was driving north through Canada to go to Alaska. It was just after sunset and the after glow of the sunset was almost entirely gone. There were some kind of radio towers out in the hills and I was doing a little game with myself trying to spot the radio tower's support wires. It took a little concentration, but I could make them out still against the slight glow of the horizon. I kept moveing from one set of lights to the next to see how far out there I could see. The radio towers had 2 red lights on the tops of them. Off to the right of the radio towers there was another set of red lights, but this set had three lights and another set of lights right next to it that held the same shape, but different colors (One set was red,red,red and the other set was red,white,green). I thought that it was kind of weird and continued my little game on it. I noticed there was no tower under it and no wires. It wasn't close enough to anything to have been supported by something else. As I kept driving I noticed it was near the road and I would be driving near it, so i kept my eyes on it as much as I could. The trees along side of the road were about 50 feet tall and these lights were about that again over them. Once I got almost right under them I pulled over along side of the road and turned my car off. I got out of the car and stood there looking up at them. First thing I noticed was there was no sound of anykind of engine or exhaust. This really had my attention at this point, I knew this was something seriously new to me. The lights didn't give off any real radiance to speak of, more of a dim luminesense. The trees below the lights didn't show and color of the lights. The glow was almost like the glow emitted by the painted Christmas lights, a real subdued glow. The position and shape of the lights were like a wide V shape with the individual lights them selves being the shapes of large ovals or maybe circles looked at from the side. The angle of the V shape was about 30 degrees angle on each side angled up. Kind of like this with the angles being 30 degrees and the lines being ovals \_/ much like lights on the bottom side of a concave object. I tried really hard to get a look at what the lights were attached to, but the lights didn't illuminate the object in any way, which was really weird. I must have been within a 100 yards from these things with them across the two lane highway over the trees on the edge of the highway's cleared area. I heard no noise from the objects, noticed no movement for about 5 minutes.The red,red,red one started moveing away from me at a 45 degree angle to the highway to my left at probably 10-20 miles an hour.The speed was sudden and totally steady. Then once it got almost out of sight over the trees the red,white,green one matched the red one's speed and trajectory perfectly and in the same fasion. Throughout the whole encounter there was no noise made from these lights.
