Bright lights near Rotterdam Airport

I live in a penthouse apartment with tall windows. Excellent view all over. This Sunday morning I saw three bright lights hanging in the sky. Normally I would take them for airplanes as we live near an approach of Rotterdam airport. However they did not move. J ust hung there. At different heights. Hard to determine what heights.

After 15 minutes one by one the lights started moving west (I think) and they became smaller, less bright. Then I saw flashing lights going around in circular motion. Then they disappeared altogether. There can be explanations: blimps. But we donít have those here. Or helicopters. But what would three helicopters with huge lights be doing here hanging on different heights? Not likely. That is all.

Regards from Holland.
