Three white orbs over San Antonio, Texas

My daughter and I were on our way to a 7:30pm movie showing on Nov. 1, 2019. Shortly after entering the expressway traveling northeast at a 7:05pm, we noticed a helicopter in the distance zig zagging back and forth across the expressway and behind it was a single orb-like light relatively low in the air.

We decided to keep our eyes on it because it seemed unusual. After watching it for 2-3 minutes, it became two lights. Whether it split or manifested, as a third one does later, I don’t remember. At this point we were traveling in an easterly direction with the path of the expressway.

Immediately after splitting, one light rose higher in the air and towards the north just to the left of the expressway and the other dropped lower down but still to the left. The helicopter moved further away to the right side of the expressway right after the second orb appeared.

I told my daughter to immediately start filming the lights. The two videos were recorded on her iPhone 10. After recording 25 seconds of the two orbs she stopped recording for some reason. Since I was focused on the road and orbs, I didn’t realize it at the time.

It was then we realized the two orbs had turned into three. It was difficult to see because the lowest orb was behind the very high netting of a driving range facility when it happened. She checked the video and realized she’d just caught the third orb manifesting beside the lower orb at the end of the video. I told her to start recording again and she was able to catch 14 secs of the three orbs together before we exited onto another expressway and lost sight of them.

From the time we first noticed the helicopter and the one bright orb to the time we exited onto the other expressway, we observed these orbs for approximately 5 minutes.
