    Texas Lone Star?!

    I photographed these pictures of a large flashing light in the Texas sky in Sweeny on the night of January 18th 2014. I have been seeing this light for a while (about a year) and just dismissed it as a planet or star. Two weeks ago I noticed a second smaller flashing light to the north of the original light. The original light has always been seen to the east, with the second smaller light about 20 degrees to the north of the larger light. For the first time last night the larger light was due south of me and smaller light was due north. Both lights pulsates blue, green, white and red and move with very erratic movements. I took photos of the lights and it captured elements that were not visible to the naked I. Some of the photos show the lights leaving a trail which I assume is being caused by the speed of the movements. While other photos show the lights being stationary. At first, I thought the light trail was a result of the picture being distorted or a blur. However, upon further examination the trail is never in the same line nor the same color of the image. The shape of the light appears to change also the trail appears to be of different colors.

    With the recent sighting of the smaller second light I have become more curious about the possibilities. The lights can be seen on most clear lights...so you don't have to take my word. I have no idea what it is...I only know what it is not. Does anyone have an explanation of what this is or has there been additional observations made of this phenomenon?
