floating tire sized craft navigated like a dragon fly with 3 orange lights .

we hiked into the national forest late on june 24.we got to our usual spot and set up camp. we get into our tent and begin to drift off to sleep. after a few minutes my camping partner wakes me up to a light about 30 feet away. the light begins moving and we then see two more lights but smaller on each side of the center larger light. then we were just totally astonished to realize that we were seeing a tiny little craft floating gently around like a dragon fly and always shining those 3 pale orange colored lights directly at us. At times the lights seemed to pulsate and darken.After an hour of watching it float around our campsite we fell asleep.In all of my years of camping I have never seen anything like this before.They are here and it's real cool!
