3 Red nocturnal "visitors" seen in Washington County Skies.

Upon leaving work in Beaverton, Oregon, about 9:00pm or so (Murray and Mullikan), I noticed three red lights high to the northwest. They looked like red flares, yet were moving independantly, so it was not the wind. They were in sort of a taper Isoceles triangle with a single light separated from the other two by an order of 4 of the separation of the others. I observed them for about 8 minutes when I pulled into a service station just next to US26 on Murray. When I mentioned the lights to the attendant, he said he had been watching them for over a half our and they had started out in the Southeast & had moved to their current location over a span of about 10 minutes. The objects appeared to extremely high up so no sound was eveident. As we watched two of the objects came towards one another and became one, or one went out. The others just seemed to fadse away after a few moments, though there was a hint of rapid motion just before disappearing.
