During and a thunderstorm small blue orbs of light appeared in the sky and near the ground, flashing

During a severe thunderstorm I stood outside in the drive way, and also watched through the window of a door.

First, there was only one small orb of light - pea sized near the roof of the neighbor's shed. It flashed periodically. I knew it was not in the sky because it was below the tree line and in front of the other houses in the background. It was around 30 feet from me.

Nearly an hour later, as I went to watch the storm once more, there were three of these lights. One was in the far corner of the next-door-neighbor's yard, the other was coming from the sky, through the trees, and another was above the neighbor's roof.

Though they seemed to be different distances from me, they all remained the same size. They were small blue orbs that flashed periodically.

At this time I also noticed that there were at least two helicopters and one airplane flying over town - an unusual amount of aircraft activity occurring during a dangerous thunderstorm.
