I heard the boom in the early afternoon of 12/8/11 in Southport, didn't think anything of it. Then around 1am, 12/9/11, I heard it again. Went outside, looked to see if it was thunder, it wasn't. There were a few clouds, but the stars were still visible. Looking south, I saw 2 amber colored lights in the sky. the left light then split into two lights for a total of 3 lights. Went inside to tell my wife, she came out to see the lights were gone. She went back inside as I stayed out. Then it appeared as one of the lights were turning back towards Southport. Same effect as you see a car coming around a curve. There is an airport nearby, but that was not the normal approach or takeoff pattern. I am curious. Thanks.
