|6 total lights move across northwest-north night sky 1 at a time, 3 blue/red blink 2 blue blink 1 blue solid
I saw an unusually bright star (object 1) which made me take notice, it was solid blue amd stationary. I thought there was nothing special after all, but then saw an inch away on the horizon, a set of double red lights (object 2).
I watched the red lights begin fast blinking blue, then red, and travel in a non-linear path northwest-north until out of view. Then I saw a cut of light such as a shooting star right where I saw the light disappear, in the SW direction it came from, approx. 2-3 inch long.
The same type of light appeared a about an inch from the star, and followed a similar path until out of view, north to northwest with no change in direction (object 3).
My mother is on the computer, I tell her to come look, amd she witnesses the rest of the event. A bright blue fast blinking light follows a similar path until out of view (object 4.)
These all happened at uneven intervals, number 4 appeared after approx. 10 minutes of nothing happening.
Another bright blue fast blinking object appears, and follows the same path as the others did (object 5.)
Then (object 1) BRIGHT blue solid light suddenly begins moving and following the same path, which shocks me, I thought it was only a star.
Once it is out of view, one more set of double red lights appears (object 6) begins blinking red and blue, and follows the same path, potentially faster.
I'd say each object took 45 seconds moving across the sky until object 1 moved, object 1 and 6 took about 30 seconds each.
Several varying minutes passed between each object appearing, object one was constant in one place until it moved, the whole time of the event.
I only had my tablet on hand and tried to take a video, but it was too dark.
