I was running down to the gas station at about 8:45 PM for a few items when I noticed three very bright white lights in the sky. They appeared to be three distinct lights in a row close together and at first I thought it was three different objects but as I looked closer, it appeared to be three lights in a row on one object. I noticed that they were not moving, just in one spot. the lights changed from white to having hints of orange light blended with the white. They did not pulsate or blink on and off, only changed color. This is what initially caught my attention as other aircraft have blinking lights. I stopped on the side of the road to take pictures with my Iphone. After a few minutes of this I noticed some much smaller, dimmer group of red flashing lights (about 6-8 small lights) appeared and approached from above the first object. The red lights flashed very fast on and off and with a random pattern. As soon as it had reached directly over head of the orange and white lights they all started moving very quickly in the NE direction, and I attempted to take a few pics as the red lights approached and as they all moved away together. They were moving so fast that i only got one pic of them leaving. I have never observed anything like this in my life and I am familiar with the usual military aircraft that frequent the area due to Fort Bragg in neighboring Fayetteville.
