Chevron craft - 2 bright white/blue lights

My girlfriend And I were driving from San Diego to Dallas. Some time between 1:00 am and 3:00 am, heading east on the 8 or the 10, west of Tucson, we observed what can be best described as 2 "dancing lights" on the northeast horizon, perhaps a mile or so away, although it was difficult to tell.

The lights were almost halogen like - a brilliant white blue. It soon became clear these light were affixed to a craft, as they remained in the same relative position indicating they were affixed to a wing. I remarked upon first sight that the maneuvers this craft was performing were not possible. It would go from just hovering over ground level, and immediately climb, while spinning, to a couple thousand feet - almost like it was performing. It then shot straight up and disappeared.

About a minute later it reappeared directly in front of us, like two headlights. It was traveling quite slowly, almost like a jetliner landing. It was traveling west on the other side of the interstate at maybe 100 feet. As it passed our lone car, its forward facing lights slowly rotated to point directly at the ground. Its profile seemed negligable, almost like it was just a wing. No sound. After it passed our car and again acsended rapidly (like a few seconds) out of sight.

At this point we were well freaked out and contemplating what to do. Maybe a minute later, I saw the same two lights in the rearview mirror following us east. At this point my girlfriend started crying. It slowly moved closer and again the lights rotated from a forward position to pointing at the ground. It then once again rocketed away not to be seen again.
