Aircraft are REQUIRED to have a number of lights on their craft. First they mus have strobes which can be seen about 20miles away. Then they have

The only ones that blink are the strobes. Also, helicopters have a very similar layout.
Not entirely true. As a pilot and former military analyst I can tell you that there are quite a few aircraft, black-ops, experimental, stealth,
covert, etc. that do NOT always use their running or landing lights. The strobes you are referring to are only for aircraft use -when the aircraft
WANTS to be seen. And such is not always the case.
Another potential answer is the newest super-stealth craft under development. For example, the one dubbed "Firefly" comes to mind when reading the
OP's description. Have you heard of it? Probably not. Do a search.
Basically, Firefly relates to the new super-stealth aircraft being developed for NATO currently believed to still be under black-ops testing. The
name comes from a specific characteristic designed into the craft that gives observers on the ground (or in the air) a changing appearance that is
difficult to pin down or identify. One of these is a configuration of lights on the underside of the craft that swivel and blink at random and
pre-selected intervals and can even be pivoted so they appear from the ground as three or more lights or as a single bright light – which is why it
has been given the name ‘firefly’.
Oh yeah - they're out there all right. And no, it is NOT always possible to declare EITHER/OR common airplanes/Aliens. There are indeed other
possibilities. Would TPTB purposely try to fool observers on the ground like this? Don't make me laugh...
