Slow blinking white light on July 4th.

My husband,daughter and myself drove to view the yearly Fourth of July fireworks display Fort Hood puts on. We went about a mile away to the local newspaper building parking lot. You can see very well from there and not get tangled up in the traffic down on the highway. There was about 50 people scattered about the parking lot. We sat our lawn chairs up and relaxed. As the show started something kept catching my attention in the sky to the right of me. I looked at my husband and he said that yes, he's been watching it too. No one else noticed. They were all focused on the fireworks. It was stable in the sky flashing slow. Then it started to move. Very slowly at first. Then after about 5 minutes it just "shot" away. I have lived in Killeen for about 35 years and I have seen all kinds of military aircraft and flares. This was neither. This is also not the first time for me to see things like this here.
