Duration:1 hour
Reddish organish lights blinking turning off and reappearing at a modest altitude for an hour.

at about 6 o'clock at work some co workers told me about lights in the sky. intrigued i saw flashing reddish organish lights that were hovering above the ground at an estimated altitude of 3000 feet. they did not move but blinked continuously at a rapid pace, then dim and reappear in a different location. there would be new ones appearing and dimming at different altitudes and close to each other and some spaced. counted 6 at one point. there were two aircraft nearing the location but still far off and when they got closer at the end they simply turned off one by one til there was nothing. I grew up in as a child of the air force as my father was active duty.

i myself spent 4 yrs in the air force. I've never seen anything like this. i thought maybe helicopters but no indicator lights flashing green red white. i thought hot air balloons. not sure what it was got some bad pictures on my iPhone... just baffling.
