Location: Lyas (France),
|the looking like afterburning lights moved steadily at relatively slow speed ( guess= < 200 kts )
I’m a retired military jet pilot ( fighter bomber sqn ).
It was about 23h15.
Being outside and looking at the sky I saw 3 different long streams of light looking like afterburning lights but much longer (3 to 4 times longer) and with more residuals in it. 2 streams were very closed together, one was a little beside and behind. Directions was from North to South.
I was listening for sound but it was as quite as normal. That was very strange. The altitude seemed quite low, about maybe 1500 ft AGL, although very difficult to say.
When back inside I went on internet to see if there where any comments. Than I decided to report it.
