White light appears over clear Texas sky?

3 of my friends and I were smoking cigarettes on the outside porch of his home in northern Nacogdoches, Texas - 4:00 AM Central Time Zone. I was amazed of how clear the night’s sky was, and also how well you could see stars. I started to focus my attention at the brightest star in sky. I stared at it for about 15 seconds pondering if it were in-fact the north star, then realized it was more eastern.

At about that moment of realization, the frozen star-like light started slightly moving to west in a straight but slow motion. I started yelling at the other 3 people outside with me, and pointed out the moving (non-blinking) bright white sphere of light. We all had a sudden rush shoot through our body’s once we had all realized we’d never seen anything like this before. No one said a word, just mumbled slowly stuff like oohhhhhhhhh! or whattttttt! (I could tell that everyone was truly freaked out.) The light started speeding up gradually while swerving slight zigzags in the sky. About 2 minutes into seeing this object pass across about 3/4s of the visible sky , it suddenly disappears. We instantly ran across the house to front yard to see if we could still see anything from a different angle.

Around 45 seconds after seeing the light go out/disappear we all 4 see a super bright shooting star looking thing with a long bright tail zoom across the whole sky(diameter about- 8 gauge).

While these events were going on, flashing lights like lightning were striking about every 10-15 seconds and no one saw any actual lightning, nor heard any thunder, we just saw light flashes in the distance. I’m not too sure if that has anything to do with the light object we saw, but it could perhaps.

This is the 3rd time I have seen unexplained UFO objects with more than just myself viewing, but my 4th time to ever see these floating lights in Nacogdoches within a year and a half. Every time they have been about the same, my first 2 sightings the light was 100% bigger and seemed more of a blue-ish white light- and my latest 2 encounters I’ve been seeing a more white based light circle about the size of a lower-case o (size 12 font).

I’m just looking for a possible explanation for what I’ve been seeing, or if anyone else has seen the same things that 7 of my friends and I truthfully saw. Thanks for your time.
