I was standing in the exit door of my garage watching a plane on approach to Huntsville International Airport, circling from the south to the north approach to the airport. As the plane banked right, approximate location was over the water towere off Menefee road, a small blue-white light appeared behind and above the aircraft that caught my eye. The light turned into three comet like blue-white lights as it accelerated in descent, approximately a 60 to 70 angle traveling north west. As it accellerated two small red lights appeared between the three blue-white lights, all five lights were in a straight line perpendicular to the flight path. The tails from the blue lights went from the beginning point I saw the light to the point it leveled out, no less than 300 feet, then slowly retracted to a single light moving away towards the North East. Very quickly its size shrank and disappeared. No sound other than the airliner overhead. There was also a plane to the! North West, looked like it may have taken off from Huntsville and swinging around towards Mempis, TN. No aircraft accelerates that fast, moves that fast or glows like that with no noise.
