Odd lights in the sky

Drove in from the north tonight and there are several double lights floating in the sky. Not moving fast enough for planes, I think. Anybody know?
A deliberate and determined effort to obstruct everything, no matter what the merits, just to re-fight the result of an election is not normal, and for the sake of future generations, we can't let it become normal.

I heard some truck-like noises coming from over by the highway.

I saw some stars in the sky last night.

Visual acuity and accurate estimation of speed is something that most of the population, without specific training, can't do with any accuracy. Add in a lack of spacial references and the aircraft you saw seemed to defy what you would consider normal. That doesn't mean it isn't normal, it just means what you observed didn't seem normal to YOU.

Besides, what is "not fast enough" for planes? Ever flown in a Cub or a Husky or a Champ or a Steerman? Slow flying is relative.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus

If it was something flying and we don't know what it was........It was a UFO.

It was interesting for sure. We counted six of them close to town. An airplane flew in toward Easterwood while these things kept floating up there.

My wife said she's been seeing paragliders lately, but these seemed too high for that.

Oh well, chalk it up to another mystery under the Aggiedome.

There was a training exercise and Easterwood (touch and go). Can appear to someone as a "floating" light in the sky (when they are flying directly at you).

It's not up at night, silly.

Well, technically, it is. Just not here.
