|Repetitive meteor style lights in a group flying over Utah's Hill Air Force Base then disappearing.
Normally I sleep through the night, but I was woken up by something at around 1:00 AM. I went to the bathroom and then went back to the edge of my bed and just happened to peak out my window, when i did that I looked into the sky and saw a bunch of very small glittery lights coming out of the sky. My first thought is wow a meteor shower. I have never seen one so I woke my wife up and said come look at this, it’s a meteor shower. She said she couldn’t look because she did not have her contacts in so she went back to sleep and I went back to the window. It took a minute but I finally realized that there was a very loud ongoing jet sound/rumble. Now I do live next to an air force base, but I have been living next to the base for 18 years and have never heard a jet that loud, that late at night for that long. I kept watching the lights thinking I’m seeing a meteor shower and there is a jet in the distance, but then the swarming shower started moving. I th! ought that this was where the tiny meteors were falling to but when I really focused on the lights I noticed that they were all repeating their patterns. As the lights got further away, the jet noise seemed to get softer and eventually was gone as the lights were not visible anymore. Just after that I could hear a jet taking off from the base for a few seconds and I then went to bed. The lights were white, they looked like glitter balls or fire flies buzzing around. This happened right over my neighborhood and the lights moved over the base and then over some mountains in an eastern direction.
