Curving meteors?

Can anyone tell me why I am getting this effect. I set up a simple GoPro Hero 5 Black on Night Time Lapse, 30 second shutter, 1 minuter interval, ISO 800. It recorded 10-15 shots with various meteors shooting across the night sky, but the trajectory of the meteor is arced. The pictures posted are from 11:24PM-ish Oct 12, 2020, New Mexico.
So before I start wearing tin foil hats, is there an explanation as to why these pictures are coming out like this?
Thank you
Michael

These look like Aeroplane lights, must be an airport nearby.

Cheers

Dennis

I can clearly see blinking lights. Airplanes, not meteors.

Thank you Dennis. I guess secretly I was hoping it was something more

Thank you

Or it might be helicopters. Like this one.

I actually do have a few that look like this. The light isn't as smooth/continuous as shown here, but very similar otherwise.
Thanks for posting that one for confirmation.
