Lights over Comanche.

On 10/28/068 I was at my sons 8th grade football game at Gordon Wood Stadium in Brownwood Texas. Facing the East North East around 19:35 we all saw three lights suddenly appear. I instantly saw them because I was turn toward the North East sitting on the West side of the stadium talking to my mom.

The lights appeared and did not move and stayed stationary for about 10-15 seconds. I laughed and asked my mom, wife, sister and brother law if they see those lights. They said yes and my mom asked what is that. The only thing I could imagine it to be would be a single engine jet in a formation with two more jets going directly away from us for a few seconds and we must be seeing the firey glow of their engines.

We all laughed when it went away and then another three lights appear 10-15 seconds later farther to the south a little lower in altitude and they stayed stationary for about 10 to 15 seconds. At that time I grabbed my phone and opened the camera. The third set of lights appear 10 seconds after the second set and I could see them in my phone with it being dark and with the stadium lights on in front of me. You could still see in the sky the three lights in my phone pretty clearly. I noticed they were dimming away and I took a picture at 19:43. (It's on my phone and I'm not sure how to get it off).

The next few seconds there was a single light to the north and lower from the first three lights we saw. Then there was a single lights to the south of the first lights we saw. Those only appeared for maybe 3-5 seconds. And had the exact same color and brightness the first three lights had.

With in 30 seconds after seeing the last light my mom noticed a plane flying toward the area we saw the lights. It was coming from the west north west at approximately the same altitude. It was noticeably how the lights on the plane stayed lit and had one blinking light and that those lights were not the same intensity or color of the three lights earlier and where not near as bright.

I attempted to leave a voice mail early today but was interrupted by my boss so I thought I would send you this. Thanks
