|A radiating sextant in red.
At approximately 2010 my wife and I were getting out of our pool, we noticed two red objects located South of our location, Object A was about 25 degrees above the horizon. Object B was about 30 degrees above the horizon and 1 degree or so to the west. My wife went into the house. Their lights seemed to radiant in the cardinal directions of N, NE, SE, S, SW, W, SW. They appeared stationary. Civilian aircraft passed beneath them and one aircraft passed at a high altitude. Upon the passing of the higher altitude aircraft object A's lights pulsed and it seemed to go upward. My wife came back outside and we observed object A moving to the south at an extremely high rate of speed. Object B remained in position for about 3 to 4 minutes more. Then another two aircraft passed underneath object B. Object B pulsed similar to object A and went straight up and disappeared. I took a couple of photographs of both objects. My background is military, combat veteran. I have observed helicopter, ground attack aircraft, fighters, and high altitude bombers as well as transport aircraft of all types I have never witnessed anything like this. I don't have images yet.
