Hovering lights above tree line in remote wooded area.

While driving home along FM 1716, I noticed bright lights hovering above the tree line (approximately 40 feet above ground) on the left side of the highway. At first glance, I thought it was a tower of some kind, but I’ve lived on the road for five years and have never noticed lights or a tower of any kind before.

By the time I processed that it was something unusual, I had turned onto county road I live on, which intersects the section of highway where the sighting occurred. I turned my car around and went back, but whatever the lights were, they were gone.

Six to eight bright white lights formed a rectangle, there were blue or red lights mixed in, as well. I also thought it might have been an oil platform that had been put up just that day, which would explain why I’d never noticed any lights on that section of highway before. However, I drove past the same spot the next day. No oil rigs, no tower, just un-cleared forest.

I've never seen a sighting before. I'm not a skeptic or a believer, as there is no indisputable evidence for either stance. I'm an educated Christian - stable and reasonable - and I have no explanation for what I saw. It was too low and small to be a plane, and it was in a stationary hover when I saw it.
