|Witness familiar with area was surprised enough to report some strange objects near Scott AFB.
Witness went to the kitchen and from my patio doors saw two pulsating, strobe like lights in the Eastern sky. The lights flashed red and white and were above the tree line. The lights came closer growing in size and hovered side by side. The one on the left moved away from the other light and the lights of both objects pulsed faster and brighter. Then the light on the right went to the East and witness watched until it was out of sight. The other light went south and was observed to move fast across the sky until it was out of sight. Neither one diverted from its path, in other words they moved straight in a path. Witness first thought of the lights that flashed on high towers but realized there are no towers there. Witness thought it might be a reflection but there was nothing in the house behind that was lighting up and there were no windows behind witness. The lights reminded witness of strobe lights as they were pulsating very fast. They were too large an! d too bright to be airplane lights and moved much faster. Witness lives near an Air-Force base and an airport so observes airplanes, jets, and helicopters on an hourly basis. The only thought was that it might have been large drones.
