|Bright light emits smaller light
We were driving westbound on I-40, somewhere between exit 108 and exit 140, heading toward Albuquerque.
I noticed an intense, white light over some mountains to the ENE of us. It hovered there for at least five minutes, unchanging, until I saw a smaller white light emerge from it and travel SW in our direction.
This smaller light grew to the intensity of the first light, while the other light dimmed out and seemed to drop in altitude. I eventually lost sight of the initial light behind a hill, but the second light crossed over the expressway above us. I didn't hear any sound from the light.
Upon closer inspection, I didn't see any flashing lights - it remained a solid, white light as it passed overhead. It headed toward the west, and I lost sight of it.
