Walking down Appersonway heading south I stop at the intersection of Fischer street and as I looked to the west I saw orange lights coming on in sequence about 4 or 5 degrees apart. The lights turned off in sequence in the matter of 5 seconds. I took these to be flares because I have seen flares before in that area. This event occurred about 15 degrees above the horizon and appeared to be in the order of 1 to 3 miles away. After those lights went out, 10 to 12 lights appeared just to the north of the area as the first lights. They appeared to be spaced approximately a fingernails length apart. They looked like a string of beads, in a circular pattern going around an object. They were orange. I noticed the lights were on all at the same time and they went out all at the same time not in sequence which was different from the earlier lights I observed. I took that the two events could have been connected because they were in the same time and area. I thought the second lights were not flares because the lights were not spaced apart only a small degree compared to the lights before which I believe could have been flares. Also, because the lights all shut out together at the same time made them appear suspicious.
