SLOW MOVING AIRCRAFT / LARGE ROUND WHITE LIGHTS PULSING IN UNISON ACROSS BACK OF CRAFT

AT APPROX. 20:00 HRS WHILE LOOKING TO THE NORTH EAST, AN AIRBORNE OBJECT WAS OBSERVED BY MY WIFE AND I. NO VISABLE CRAFT STRUCTURE COULD BE SEEN, OTHER THAN THREE VERY LARGE WHITE LIGHTS RUNNING HORIZONTAL ACROSS THE BACK OF THE CRAFT. THE LARGE WHITE LIGHTS WERE PULSING FROM DIM TO BRIGHT SIMULTANIOUSLY EVERY 2 SECONDS. A RED & WHITE STROB WAS OBSERVED ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE TRAILING EDGE OF THE CRAFT CLOSEST TO US. THE CRAFT AS IT TRACKED FROM THE NORTH EAST TO THE SOUTH WEST APPEARED TO BE APPROX. 2 MILES DISTANCE AT AN ALTITUDE OF APPROX. 2500 FEET AND AT AN ANGLE OF VIEW OF APPROX 45 DEGREES. WHAT IS INTERESTING IS, THAT THERE WAS NO NOISE DETECTED FROM THE CRAFT AND IT WAS TRAVELING AT A MUCH SLOWER RATE, THAN OTHER AIRCRAFT HAVE BEEN OBSERVED FLYING IN THE AREA. WE ARE IN THE FLIGHT PATH FOR HOUSTON HOBBY AIRPORT AND OBSERVE AIRCRAFT ALL THE TIME DAY AND NIGHT ARRIVING AND DEPARTING THE AIRPORT. WE ARE ALSO CLOSE TO ELLINGTON FIELD AND NASA.
