I need a schematic for a circuit that flashes two LEDS (or more) but while they flash they strobe? Answered

I'd like them to flash kinda like the lights on a school bus.

Take two 555 circuits, Make one pulse at twice the rate of the flash you want.

Push that through a J-K flip-flop, take the Q output to a NAND gate, take the /Q to another NAND. Tie the J and K pins, take the clk input to the 555 out.

Make your other 555 circuit flash at the rate of your strobe.

Take your LED drives off the outputs of the NAND.
