Video of incident
Sequence of screenshots seeming to show airplane flying above lights
Shot of instrument panel at end
Were the lights reflections of cockpit lights? If so it's strange that they all quickly appear at the same time. I suppose that would only happen if there was some major situation happening with the aircraft. Also I guess above 39,000 ft it is too high for flares. If they were flares left by an aircraft I suppose one would expect to see lights on the aircraft.
