|Strange lights near Raleigh, NC.
While heading east toward Fuquay-Varina from Holly Springs I noticed a tight group of 3 Orange Lights in the sky. They stayed in front of me for several minutes then eventually were on my left side (north).
While changing angles I noticed no anti-collision lights on the object. I did however notice what appear to be some type of military aircraft above the object flying steady with the lights (500+/- feet). I was able to see 4 anti-collision lights on the aircraft above the object. While returning to Holly Springs the object had circled back from the northwest and was heading southeast towards it original location. Again it appeared a military aircraft was still flying near by.
Once I returned home I noticed the inbound aircraft to RDU were in a holding pattern toward the north with several dark aircraft heading toward the direction of the lights. We do have a military base to our south however these lights did not appear to have any normal aircraft landing or flying light pattern. The lights appeared to be visible from 360 which struck me as odd as well as no anti-collision lights visible from any angle.
