Three stationary red/white lights in eastern sky

Event: I had stepped outside from one of the trailers onsite to return to the main building. I was on the east side of the complex, and instantly notice two bright white/red lights due east of my position. The lights were low in the sky, maybe 5-10 degrees above the “horizon”. Positioned horizontally level with each other, the lights were separated by about the distance between my hands when my arms were extended straight out from my body. They lights themselves appeared much larger than any other stars or lights in the sky. My guess, due to the size of the lights, would be within 1/2 mile of my position. Neither light appeared to be in motion of any direction, there was absolutely no sound being emitted from either light source. After observing the lights for about 3 minutes, a third light exactly similar to the other two appeared due south of the original pair, maybe a mile or two away. From my perspective, it too was stationary.

The thing that caught my attention most was the brightness and the clarity of the lights. The light was not being “beamed” down or away from the source, nor was it “blinding” in any fashion. It is best described as “clear and pure” white light, very warm without any pulsation visible. All three sources emitted the same intensity of white light, which created a “4-point” star effect with two points up/down, and two points each left/right of the source. What appeared to be emitting from behind each white light source was an equally bright and intense red light, whose points appeared to be along the axis of NW/NE/SW/SE when compared to the white points of light. I describe the red lights as behind the white lights only from the stand point that the red light spheres appeared to be slightly larger than the white light, and the points of red only shown in between the points of white.

All three lights were much larger than any visible stars. Also they were larger to any “aircraft” lights as they would normally be viewed. All three lights remained constantly stationary. Suddenly the light that appeared after the first two, emitted only a visible red light for about 2 seconds then was “gone” or out of sight. No noticeable movement or sound was detected. Then the southern lights of the two original lights appeared to dissipate in the same way: Only the red light visible for a brief moment, then instantly gone. I viewed the remaining light for another 30 seconds or so, then had to return inside.
