Tonight's delta rocket launched & the 4 lights followed the solid rocket booster jettison. Lights blinked and got brighter, bigger but as soon as delta rocket disappeared, so did the lights. It also seemed like the lights were all connected as a disc.

Object Flight Path
A delta rocket took off at 8.29 tonight. As it approach the Vero area, and continued on a south east tragetory, it deployed its solid rocket boosters. They got brighter and then seemed to be followed by four bright lights following behind the still bright rocket.
I have lived in Vero for 16 yrs and witnessed many launches from the Cape but I have never ever seen lights like this. They somehow end seemed to follow,course of delta but got brighter, all 4 lights flickering in non sequential bursts. Clearly, they were all connected as they were always equidstant to each other. Neighbors saw it aw well. It continued to seem to very slowly descend all the while following the course of the rocket.
One neighbor thought it was lights on the rockets that were deployed coming descending but all 4 lights remained the same distance fro each other.
