Bright white flashing and moving light that followed along side 2 passengers in a car over 20 miles up above the tree line at night

On the night of August 22, 2016, me and my brother were traveling home at about 1:30 to 2:00 in the morning. We were coming from a town called Mauriceville, heading home, when I knotice out the passenger side window, a white flashing light that was up right above the tree line. I brushed it off thinking it was a cellphone tower but when we got to the point on the road were we were parralel to the light it began to follow the car in the sense that we was traveling at about 75mph but the light was staying parallel to the car so it must have been flying over the trees at the same speed we were going. So at this point we were about half way between Mauriceville and Buna, so I told my brother to pull the car over to the side of the road and when he did to our surprise, the light had also stopped movingng. I decided to get out of the car so I could get a better view of it and when I got out I didnt hear any natural noises at all, No wind, No crickets, just The muffled! sound of The car engine. The light was still there, over the trees and it was still flashing just as bright as when I noticed it. So I got back in the car and we kept going and sure enough it continued to follow along side us for at least 10 miles at which point it completely stopped flashing all together and it wasn't there anymore. This last moment was right before you would get into Buna. I did not take my eyes off of it at nearly anytime it was there and have no idea what it was, why it was following beside us or what caused it to disapear! I'm not completely convinced it was something unatural but it was definetly a strange occurrence for me and my brother.
