Nite flying light configuration. Watching the sky at night I have noticed different light configurations on planes in the sky. The strangest would be what I think is San Jose P.D. Helicopter and has a large red flashing light that I wonder if it's like what a P.D. car has on top. I've also noticed dual blinking head lights close to the cockpit which I think the pilot likes disco lights.
Anyway my question would be is there a standard for light configurations that I could read that explains what I am seeing these days. This is just a silly question from an old man and thank you for your input.
You all have a great week! That's an order.
