Bright Light with Flare moving Westward Across our Field of View

We were driving south on I-25 at to the northeast of Bradley Road and south of Caballo Reservoir in Arrey, NM. A bright circular light with a triangular flare behind it appeared in the immediate horizon in front of us. It appeared to be within a mile and was moving very quickly across our field of vision to the right parallel to Bradley Road. The object appeared lower than us as we were elevated on the hillside. We saw it for about 4 seconds as it moved to our right, perpendicular to us. During that 4 seconds it appeared to have moved approximately one mile westward (to our right), emitting this relatively uniform, triangular flare. The flare was very bright white closest to the circular light and exhibited moments of "hot" whitish red and blue colors at the end of the flare, but was overall predominantly white. The flare did not flicker. It was a constant expression of energy with only the end of it changing colors slightly.

About the time we were in line with the object, it suddenly went dark and disappeared. But it wasn't like the light "went off". It looked more like the light accelerated at an immense rate and the object was gone.

There were no other lights associated with the object to indicate it was an aircraft. There were also many other lights down below us that were fixed and not moving, which made this one light so unique. It also appeared to be moving at a high rate of speed.
