|First 7 then up to a dozen lights at very high altitude darting around.
My wife and I were on vacation visiting San Antonio, Texas staying at Holliday Inn on the "River Walk". We were on the roof of the building in the Hot Tub when another couple joined us who we did not know. We chatted a little with them and they were visiting from Witchita Kansas where the Male was employeed at Boeing (As an Engineer if my memory is correct). My wife asked "What is that!" and she was looking up and over at a 45+ degree angle (cannot remember direction E or W). The four of us looked up and saw 7 lights darting around eachother like fire flies in the sky. I did not have my glasses on at this point and I said it was probably sparkler fire works from one of the theme parks near by. The make of the other couple said "No, that is not fireworks!" and he, his wife and mine got out of the hot tub and watched the lights dance in the sky. I rushed over to the table and retreived my glasses and was shocked when I put them on. The number of lights had grown to about a dozen lights very very high in the sky. The lights looked as though they were forward pointing lights on individual craft and as they changed direction and the light pointed away the light would disappear to us and another would appear as it banked its turn and came back down. We watched in quiet awe for half an hour. We were interupted by a security guard that came out and told us the roof/pool/spa was now closed and we had to leave. I asked him "What the hell is that?" and he looked up and says he has no idea. We agreed that the lights were well above commercial flight altitude. The security guard was an older man who said he was retired military and he had never seen anything like it either. After a few minutes he made us leave the roof. My wife and I walked all around the building looking out windows trying to see the lights but the angle was wrong. We have talked for many years now about what we saw. I am curious if there are any other reports during that time frame in that location.
