Strange lights in South Central Missouri Night Sky

We live in a rural part of Missouri about 30 miles southeast of Fort Leonard Wood, so I don’t know if these incidents are related to the base???? Last night was the 2nd or 3rd time my 13 year old has seen these lights in the night sky, but my first full experience.

We were driving home and the lights just appeared (there were other planes flying in the area and these were not the same kind of lights). They had a sort of yellowish glow and there were 3 at first in a triangular shape all the same brightness and then they just faded out, next they lit up one at a time but in 3 different spots and then just faded away.

After that, the lights took the shape of a half moon and lit up one right after the other in rapid succession from top to bottom then bottom to top (sort of like a tail of a huge firework, there were none in the area). After the half moon shape, they lit up straight up and down lighting up in rapid succession again and then fading out, followed by the lights lighting up in 3 different spots again shaped sort of like a triangle and then fading out.

We weren’t close enough to see anything other than the lights, but my 13 year old has seen this same thing before above the field in the back of our home???
