|Was lights in the sky over Abilene
We were driving East leaving Abilene and saw a bright stationary light that did not appear to be moving. We thought it might be a helicopter or tower of some sort, but as we got closer the bright light became 3 lights, then one blinking light. As we drove past, there were no lights on the back side of whatever it was. Then the light was back, then gone again.
A few minutes later the passenger of the car saw what appeared to be a bright meteor streak across the sky, but then as the glow “burned out” the object moved 90 degrees from its previous path and disappeared.
