Bright Triangular Shaped Craft

On 9/21/07 at 8:14 PM , my 2 daughters were outside playing w/friends. I heard screams & looked outside my window to find out what the comotion was about. I saw no one. Seconds later my kids ran into my apartment screaming, " Daddy, it's a UFO in the sky!". Being that I live near Wright Patterson Air Force base, I figured it must be some kind of military plane. I rushed to the porch balcony followed by my childeren. What I saw next, I could not believe. I live right along 75 south in between Dayton & Cincinnati so I know for a fact I was looking Southeast. In the distant sky, among small engine aircrafts that normally fly in this area, I noticed what seemed to be 3 white dots followed by a red dot in a train type fashion moving through the night sky towards the South east. I would estimate the altitude as being than that of a low flying commercial plane. I tried to get a picture w/my cell phone but the lighting was terrible. Seconds later, the dots seemed as if they completely changed directions. Instead of moving away from me they were now moving towards my apartment balcony. After changing directions, whatever it was stopped & hovered left to right. It was the weirdest movement I have ever seen any craft make. After hovering for a few seconds the dots turned into about 9 bright lights that together formed a triangle. Surrounding each individual bright light was a bright white outline of a triangle. The complete triangle turned at an angle then, like a firecraker exploded & the bright dots inside the triangle burst into clusters & then turned red! The red remnats then formed a huge semicircle in the sky.The aircraft towers in the area all turned red. Two airplanes that looked & sounded like the military vehicles that usually frequent the area were observed passing shortly therafter. The night sky, which had been pretty active up until I saw the last of what I thought to be military vehicles, was now silent! If this was some kind of prank, I wish someone would tell me!
