Sorry this is my first post on the board and it's more a question than anything, but I am in dire need of an answer.
For the past 6 months I would pick up my wife from work around 6 pm and get home around 6:30pm. Every night for the last 6 months I would go outside
and map stars and such because astronomy is very relaxing to me.
So to my point, at about 7:30 on the dot every night I witness silent aircraft going south to north. It is always night so I can't see any body of
the aircraft only the navigation lights. What is weird is it's almost every 3 minutes a new one will fly by (same one circling?) in the same
direction. The way I'm asking anyone to identify this aircraft is from it's strobe pattern. It is not typical two fast or slow blinks like most that
I am able to identify, but this seems to start it's first strobe from the right wingtip to left but what's odd is it has multiple lights underneath
it's body as well so it's a pulsing pattern if that makes sense. So again it will pulse right to left, then left to right, then here's where I get
confused, from center to both wings?? The only way to understand the pattern is to think of a new mustang blinker that pulses and not blink.
Only explanation I can see Is uav drone but I can't seem to find any info on their strobe patterns. About where I live, I am not near an air force
base, live inside of a state park so I can see the sky way better here than the city. I've been here over 3 years and this is the first year to
experience this. Also have been seeing osprey going west to east this month so I am certain what I'm seeing is military. And the weird thing to me is
these planes I'm seeing will always fly directly above my head dead center ( maybe using my phones gps?)
Anyways sorry mods if in wrong forum and any answers would be appreciated
