3-4 lights fly low over I-5 in central California

Driving North on I-5 towards Sacramento about 2-3 hours south. I am not familiar with the area. It was night and there were dark fields to the left and right of the highway. I saw a group of lights (3-4 round solid) about 100 yards ahead of me go over the highway from left to right and then down disappearing into the field to the right of me. I guess they were moving 20-30 miles an hour because I saw them for about 4 to 5 seconds.

My initial impression was that these lights were car lights that went over the highway on a bridge. That was how low the lights were to the highway. That I was going to pass underneath a bridge very soon. At least this was my driving navigation thought process and I kept waiting and waiting for a bridge. Then I realized there was no bridge to go under. I starting looking to the right, into the field, searching for an airport or landing field of some sort, lights of any kind but there was nothing but dark, unlit area.

I do not remember the exact time and date. I know it was in the late spring or early summer of 2006
