Multiple flights over panama city beach florida chased by aircrafts

My girlfriend and I were sitting on the beach facing south on the gulf of mexico, at Camp Helen State Park.

We had been sitting for a while when we noticed three orange lights at relatively low altitude in the distance at about southeast relative to us (in the direction of tyndall airforce base). These lights were arranged in a row and were clearly seen high enough over the horizon to know it was not a boat or anything like that. They would flash in intermitent patterns, sometimes one would flash at a time or all three at once, they would even flash in sequence.

After noting this for about ten minutes we noticed something else. At about a 50 degree angle to the south, about five miles form were at we noticed a distinct blue light floating motionless in the sky. After about one minute this light split into two lights. These started floating apart in a spiral trajectory moving clockwise. Once they were somewhat far from each other one flew off at high speed towards the east while the other one started to look as if it was coming closer to our location. After the second light was out of sight we heard the roaring of two jet aircraft come from the southeast and the second light quickly flew out of sight.


Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD
