Shape: Other
Duration:10 minutes
seen while driving...stationary bluish flashing lights high in sky..pattern involved.

I was the driver and had a passenger in my car. Driving down I-37 South when noted that passenger was watching intently out the window on his side of the car. I looked where he pointed and saw a series of flashing lights, though location was entirely stationary for the entire duration of watching time. It was in roughly the SW sky of San Antonio...too high for towers, etc...light pattern and stationary status not consistent with plane or helicopter. There were eight lights in the pattern, bluish, regularly spaced. ... ... . . It immediately reminded me of a "something" that I'd seen over 35 years ago (that shape can be seen in several of the Budd Hopkins books, in fact), also in Texas. My head immediately drew that other shape in my mind's eye. The flashing was at approximately 2 second intervals...very regular...all lights flashed off...on...off...at the same time. After about 10 minutes of observing, it was simply not there...though did seem to reappear once we got home...over the far southwestern edge of Brooks AFB (further than the base, but that was the direction). Though the pattern was one I recognized...one that had caused me trouble in the childhood incident...I found myself merely fascinated and not in the least bit upset by the sight. Otherwise, though, the emotional feel of the whole evening was that "creeps up the spine" feeling...accompanied by a rather "foggy" feeling.
