Strange line of lights, can't explain

So I live near a military base and I am quite familiar with all the aircraft that land nearby or conduct exercises. I can always hear them I can differentiate weather it's a helicopter, osprey, jet. I can also see their lights on them.

This time though I couldn't here a sound or see any wing or tail lights. I'm not one to jump to conclusions, I stayed around for a couple of minutes to see, well, anything. To my shock,there was nothing that I know could of caused what I just witnessed.

It was two bright yellow lights in the night sky, when out of nowhere in a straight line they became 15, 25, 30 lights. They were standing still for a while, then they disappeared, and one reappeared and the same thing happened again like 30 new bright yellow lights appeared. They were there for 15 seconds then finally they all vanished.

For some reason I kept thinking that it was like a train of lights in the sky making not a single sound and with no smoke or clouds as far as th! e eye can see.
