I am a United States Air Force dual qualified Weather Observer/Forecaster and was on duty at Homestead Air Reserve Base when I decided to go outside to have a cigarette by the flightline; I noticed a glowing light to my NE, initially thinking it was either a Satellite or a Meteor. It was moving to slow to be a meteor, so I thought it to be a satellite glowing due to the sun angle and aparent height of the object (I often watch satellites at night). The object created a bow wave *) in front of it then broke into 3 distinct parts, 1 large and 2 small with the large in the front. The large object remained illuminated whitish while the 2 small objects appeared to blink off and on in a red/orange-ish color, opposite of each other yet with a regular pattern. Continuing in a North to South route the objects created another bow wave *) as it appeared to slow. By this point the 3 objects were due East of my location, the bow wave *) subsided as the objects reached a SE direction from where I was observing and appeared to stop momentarily before proceeding E and out of sight. A glowing Noctilucent cloud remained where the object initially appeared to enter the atmosphere and create the first bow wave *), I stayed for 15 minutes as the Noctilucent cloud slowly dissipated. I have never observed anything like this before.
