|red and greenish lights seen over Dallas, Texas viewed from Garland, Texas.
I live in Garland, Texas only about two miles north of the Dallas city limits and just two blocks east of Garland Road. On the 4th of November just 20 minutes after midnight I was on the deck in back of my house looking south. I saw two objects moving at a fairly slow rate of speed. I would estimate their speed was less than one hundred miles per hour. One of the objects was trailing the other. I could not make out what shape they had. All I could see was two very bright lights on each object. The color of the lights was red in front and a greenish looking light in the rear of each object. They caught my attention because the lights were very large and very bright. I am very familiar with the size of safety navigational lights on aircraft. These lights were very large and much brighter than safety lights on aircraft. Also the lights did not blink, they stayed on all the time and were very bright. The lights were just above the horizon and they were a good di! stance away. (I would estimate between five and ten miles away) At first I saw them traveling in a north-eastern direction and then they turned left and were traveling in a north-western direction when I lost sight of them as they disappeared behind the trees. I only saw them for a short while, approximately ten to fifteen seconds.
I was in the Air Force for twelve years and am very familiar with aircraft lights. These lights were definitely not normal in that they were very large, very bright and they stayed on all the time.
