A plume of light came off the object at about the 8 o'clock position. The object would irregularly alternate movment in a small zig-zag pattern, and a circular pattern. Over an hour the object moved from north to south very slowly. After watching the object for about 45 minutes it's brightness would fluctuate and then a second object appeard directly under the first, brighter object. The second light was about 20 degrees closer to the horizon. After observing the two objects for a time greater than 15 minutes their blinking and brightness fluctuated and then a third object appeared about 5 degrees lower than light # 2 and slightly further south. The three observed lights would blink irregularly, sometimes sychronized, and sometimes independant of eachother. The first light was by far the brightest.
