|Two moving yellowish lights over Huntsville, AL at 10:30 pm on July 8, 2019.
In the sky over Huntsville or Redstone Arsenal, I noticed 2 bright yellowish lights and one blinking red light and did not hear any airplane or helicopter noise. The yellowish lights appeared to be moving slowly, very close but in different directions. After about 30 seconds they disappeared (not simultaneously, but separately).
It might have been some kind of a firework trail the way they faded from view, but it took a full 30 seconds for them to disappear and neither light moved downward.
After they were gone, I watched the blinking red light move toward the southwest over Redstone Arsenal toward the Huntsville Airport for an additional 30 seconds until it was obstructed from my view by a large tree. I continued watching for 10 minutes but never saw the bright yellowish lights or the red blinking light again. If I were to guess, I would suspect either some satellite-related event or two helicopters that turned on and off their lights too far away for me to hear them. I suspect the red blinking light was a satellight
