I was flying from chicago to LA and while over the desert I was taking pictures of formations in the desert. I noticed three bright lights (we were at 34,000 feet) that hurt my eyes to look at. I grabbed my camera and began taking pictures of the two bright lights, the suddenly a smaller light next to them began flashing but not at a regular pulse (smaller light can be seen in image). When I got home and started looking at the details of the images, the timestamps were not what they sould have been for the images. Where the lights were, there was nothing in that area for miles and miles as far as structures, houses, or any signs of life and they were down in an area where they wouldnt have been seen from the ground because there were desert walls all around it. I could make out some type of image just on the edges of the light, and it looked like a metalic grey. The little light was to the right of the middle big light and it began blinking after I started taking pictures, but it wasnt a steady blink, it would blink...blink blink...blink blink blink...blink blink, so it wasnt random. My first thought was ufos as I kinda laughed it off and figured it was government stuff. Looking directly at the bright lights hurt my eyes like looking at the sun even at 34,000 feet. I said something to the lady next to me and she just said she was wonder what they were too.
